As we drove out along the lanes yesterday the maize was high in the fields and swaying slightly in the light breeze. The hedges were covered in Bindweed, I've never seen so many flowers as this year. It's a flower I always associate with the turn of the seasons and the loss of summer. Hips and haws turn other hedges a deep shade of red. Blackberries and Elderberries are a rich and attractive colour and again there seems to be an abundance of them this season. Leaves are dropping from the trees and scattering across the lawn, just a few each day for now.
