Say what you will, there is a nip in the air and it will not go away. We might get the odd warm spell - we often get one or two lovely days even as late as October, but those really unbearably hot days won't be back (I may live to eat my words).
My gardeners have just rung the door bell to say they really will be here shortly to do a really good 'going-over' of my lawns and gardens - they have not been for three weeks. The front lawn is fine but the one up the side of the bungalow which is in the shade for a large part of the day -wow -the grass is a good six inches high.
My friends T and S called yesterday with a large tub of blackberries they had picked. Then this morning they called with two large green cooking apples. I have cooked them in the microwave and they smell delicious. I shall have a large bowl of them with some ice cream for my lunch tomorrow - another smell and taste of Autumn.
I seem to have had a very hectic day today so I shall now go and have a nice quiet evening. Nothing much to suit my viewing on the TV this evening so I shall have a quiet hour or so doing a Sudoku if I can get my brain in gear. See you tomorrow.
