Tuesday Textures – Autumn Flora

Autumn is the best time of year to find interesting textures in nature and gardens. The textures range from brittle leaves to spiky seed heads to velvety lamb’s ear.

Mid August and Signs of Cooler Days to Come

….right now we’re going through a bit of a heat wave

On one of my walks this week I noticed that there were signs all over the place that autumn is not too far off. Usually cooler nights cause the colours to start changing but right now the nights are pretty warm but earlier this summer that wasn’t the case. Anyway the sumac is starting to change, the berries are starting to ripen and the apples are turning red.
