Between rain and storm, we had a beautiful afternoon and, although we didn’t manage to “carpe” the entire “diem” we made the most of what came our way.
Several trees in the garden are at the best of their autumn colour but that foliage will most certainly be gone by tomorrow. Storm Callum is about to arrive, prompting an Orange Weather Alert for winds of 130kpm and danger of flash flooding. Fortunately, we are not in the most threatened corner of the country and will, hopefully, escape relatively lightly.
Nonetheless, it was an afternoon to enjoy what colour there was in the garden for tomorrow it could well be gone.
Besides, enjoying the colour and taking photographs, I also did a few odd jobs and a speedy run about with the lawnmower to keep the grass in trim so as not to face high grass in spring when the ground is wet and soft. Gardening, as you may well know, does involve some work!
