For the last couple of weeks, we have seen bales of hay being gathered and drying in the fields around us.
The harvests have been happening - wheat, hay, vegetable crops. And the bees have been busy harvesting the last of the pollen from the remaining flowers.
There is a recognisable chill in the air in the mornings and a faint reddish-orange tinge starting to appear on the leaves of some trees.
I'm trying to make the most of the end of summer and appreciating the still-light evenings and slight warmth the sun still possesses. There's no denying, though, that Autumn is around the corner. I am very much looking forward to the new season and cosying down with spiced cider and pumpkin pie. Not long now!
