Autumn

Autumn mornings are damp and heavy with dew. Mist flows downhill and gathers in areas where it is obstructed.

The sun rises late these days; usually after we have left for work so we miss how it catches the last of the mist.

The deciduous plants are hanging on to their leaves for now, slowly changing colour every day with some spectacular results.

Autumn is the perfect season for propagation. I’ve been busy splitting perennials, planting seeds and bulbs and doing cuttings. There’s also more than 200 trees to be planted in the next month or so but the shorter days catch me by surprise and it’s dark before I know it. Winter is coming and soon it will be time to rest and plan, but in the meanwhile there’s work to be done.
