The days are getting shorter and autumn is slowly moving in. We are getting a mixture of warm, late summer days, cold nights, rain and mist.There is still a lot colour in the garden, but most of it could be blown away in the next few days; we have been warned about the tail end of Hurricane Katia, which is making its way across the Atlantic in our direction, the forecast is "severe gales and flooding". Although the worst of this is predicted to hit the north of the country, we are bracing ourselves, as our house is on a high ground, very exposed to the west and I know the garden will suffer, but we hope that there will not be any damage to the house.
This is todays' garden update:
There is the last of the plums to be picked.
And the forest mushroom season is here, usually much later then in the continental Europe.
I wish you all a safe week ahead!
