September already and, despite the sunshine, there's a hint of 'to come' in the air. The yard has been tidied, the overgrown tumble of colour cleared away, and now I am ready for the leaves to fall.
What a difference a dry month and weekends away makes. Only a few weeks ago my yard was lush with growth, but without rain or regular watering that lushness soon turned to shrivel.
Oh well, next year will be here soon enough.
