If Autumn is indeed the last and loveliest smile of the year….what are we to admire next?!
Have you written your Christmas wish list, checked it twice?
Scores of children around the world are no doubt checking catalogues, searching online stores and dragging parents round shopping centres with the hope of finding what they would like to unwrap on Christmas morning, adding the items to their letters to Santa, aka their parents.
As a parent I fully understand the desire to provide for your children, the gleeful excitement that shines from their faces as they unwrap exactly what they asked for is priceless.
As the garden falls even deeper in to the clutches of Autumn there is little colour to be seen other than greens and browns, which whilst ok are a poor substitute to the array of colours which flourished a few months ago.
As I was pootling about the garden, slinging worms back in the soil, chopping back straggly plants and marvelling at the sheer strength of a spider’s web I noticed the wild flowers had finally all gone to seed.
