Autumn is a wonderful season, full of mellow fruitfullness.
Early mornings are crisp and clear, the sun sits low in the sky
and the trees cast beautiful shadows across the grass.
We love to be outdoors in the garden at this time of the year but
clearing leaves, acorns and horse chestnuts off the lawns is not a job we enjoy!
Hidden away in three of the four corners of the back garden are our compost heaps,
out of sight but sadly not out of mind.
This is the reality of being the present caretakers of
venerable silver birch, ancient oak,
massive horse chestnut and stately sycamore trees.
Joining Claudia for Reality Shot Thursday #4.
a new but fun weekly gathering
where those of us brave or silly enough
share the less than glamorous side of daily life.
