Hi :) It’s all change this week as it has felt partly like summer and partly like autumn.
Depending on what calendar is used autumn has started, or hasn’t quite yet started! The meteorological calendar has autumn beginning at the start of September and the astronomical calendar on the 22nd September.
I’ve started to notice a change already. While I was gardening last weekend the leaves of the silver birch were sporadically falling. This fall has continued and the leaves are more noticeably starting to change colour. The mornings have also started to have a slight chill to them, even on the warmer days. The flowers on all the buddleias have gone over now too.
However, the chilli plants have a lot of new flowers on, which are a little late now in the season! Although these chillis were suitable for outdoor growing I think they would have done better in a greenhouse.
It’s been quiet for blackbirds. I’ve only seen a handful this week, but the geese are still going over morning and night and I’m still dashing to the window when I hear them honking!
