Autumn has swept in with all the colours of a warm, woolly scarf.
I went on holiday recently, full of enthusiasm to leave and have a change. Well, the holiday was a real treat but so was the return.
In the time I was away the countryside has been transformed. Summer has ended but a new season, a fresh start has begun.
Last year I planted a rowan tree by our front door. As a child I remember being told a rowan tree was always planted in Scottish gardens by the front door to ward off evil. On the other hand, the wood is also used to make wands.
I don’t know if any of it is true but this rowan tree has certainly given us a magical display with it’s long fingers of reds, oranges and greens.
Now I just need to put on my own woolly scarf, go out, and start planting bulbs for the spring.
