Staring out of the morning room window, I see autumn coming to an end and I begin to think of all the things I have missed.
Flocks of starlings swooping down over the lawn and moving from one end to the other feeding, while at the same time irrigating the lawn better than I ever could. Sparrows, Tits, Finches flitting from one side to the other between the shrubs clearing out the small flies.
All the leaves have nearly fallen now, carpeting the garden with more colours than you can imagine, the lawn has stopped growing, the sun when it is out moves across less and less each day and now that darkness is descending before 5.00 pm it feels dismal.
There used to be hedgehogs, squirrels, cats that used to roam the garden but are rarely seen nowadays. A Jay has just arrived and deposited an acorn in the border, that makes a pleasant change.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind do not matter and those who matter do not mind.
