Yes - most of the leaves on the new Ash tree, which had turned deep- red for the first time, are lying on the grass. :-(( At least I got a photo of it a few days ago!

The whole garden looks buried in leaves again. LOTS of raking to do!

I know, never mind at least we go a reasonable summer this year... and there are pluses of a long mild autumn too...

The summer here wasn't good, Angie - just the autumn! There was definitely an east/west split.

1 Nov, 2009

 

ooohhh ours was ok not brilliant but much better than last year, we had plenty of paddling pool and southend days...

1 Nov, 2009

 

Not many here in July/August, I'm afraid. Still, we had a lovely mild mid-September - October! AND saw the sun at times!
