The first week of September has given us some fabulous sunny mornings… perfect for Golf lovers to get their rounds in whilst its quiet.
In the woods the shadows are longer as the sun sinks lower in its axis. The canopy is also starting to thin allowing this autumnal sun to reach those parts that have been so shady across the summer.
Berries are ripening, seeds are setting, petals dropping yet still Summer teases us.
The truth that the seasons are on the move comes towards the end of the day when those longer shadows and a bright evening sun, give the garden an ‘evening look’ long before the sun vanishes for the day…. and the temperatures make a marked drop
Yep…not a bad start to September, OK we did get the odd shower but perhaps that was much needed.
We should of course think of those caught in the dreadful and very tragic weather conditions that have struck the Bahamas. Hurricane Dorian now continues northwards up the coast of North America reeking even more destruction. A reminder that none of us are in control of our own destinies.
