Meteorologically its Autumn….well it is September the 1st…. but there are few signs of the real Autumn that has to come.
One sure sign that is getting more noticeable as each morning passes is that the sun is getting lower in the sky. It takes awhile for it to rise above the hill and break through the woods.
That is really the most obvious sign that the year is progressing. Leaf cover after the rains is again a rich ‘spring’ green and the bracken has get to show a sign that it is ‘on the turn’. It is the Birch that have started to loose leaf cover….but then again they were amongst the first to show in the Spring
