Summer’s lease hath all too short a date

Something to cheer me up on a day of endless drizzle.  We have had a beautiful Indian Summer – and after such a beastly English summer, it was only fair.  Last weekend I had a long walk in October sunshine and watched a stunning sunset just as I came over the brow of the last hill on the way home.

I trimmed the hawthorn hedge in full sun and strong winds yesterday, and earned my fireside aperitif chasing the trimmings as they blew down the path.  But the wind has brought the rain; and to add to the general gloom, we’re back to GMT today so it will be dark in little over an hour.

I therefore make no apologies for this gratuitous strawberry shot.
