Accustomed

With barely a month left to run its course, I have become accustomed to autumn. Two days of sunshine has helped my conversion immensely.

If I could put in a weather order for the next few months, today would be the template. No pinching frosts to nip vulnerable plants and fingers. For moisture I request only a heavy dew. The air must be calm, with perhaps a little laundry-drying breeze from the south. I am willing to negotiate on the details. There is one thing I will not compromise on; I demand the life-enhancing, low light that allows even the most to modest shine. Surely that is not too much to ask?

Does anyone know which department I should write to?

  1. The light certainly has a very different quality at this time of the year; light at a low angle and so very crisp and sharp on those clear frosty mornings with clear highlights and long shadows. It all adds a particular quality to the garden.

    On the other hand, literally, wet and cold hands are not pleasant while working in the garden. Brrrrr!
