Have you noticed the silence that Autumn brings? The further we walk into the season the quieter it becomes.
I walk through the orchard and was pleased to see some of the Prunus blooming.
Today is 'clean the tree house' day. I can almost hear the children's laugher and giggles, as I work. I sit for a moment and look at our collection of bees dragonflies butterflies etc. If we find a creature that has gone to Gods garden we take it to the treehouse and talk about it. We have a book that is hidden in a secret compartment. We can write our thoughts and feelings in it. It has been used for the last three years...........and will stay hidden, for the children and I are the only ones who know its hiding place :)
Later on in the day I planted up some small pots to decorate the patio area. Nothing fancy, just pretty.
The robin watched as I worked. He looked so shabby during the Summer months but just look at him now. What a handsome fellow.
Feeders cleaned, bird boxes scrubbed, hedgehog boxes checked (and yes someone is making a winter bed in one of them) I thought I had heard snuffling in the garden during my awake moments a few nights ago. In serious decline it is always heart warming to know that one is safe and snug in the garden during the winter months.......
