Today it really feels like autumn. The lawns are a fabulous garish green and the leaves of the fruit trees in the yard have all but fallen to the ground. Summer lasted so long, and without much rain it has been hard to believe that autumn and winter would really come to colour our weary landscape. To celebrate the change in season the children redecorated our nature table, retiring the bees wax picnic of strawberries, watermelon and plums and introducing the new tastes of the season, pumpkin, lemons and mandarin. Autumn reminds me of how finely balanced our natural world is. How during the days of rain and overcast skies, we are also provided with an abundance of colour and light all around us.
