Cold sunny day

A beautiful autumn day - sunny but cold. There aren't many leaves left on the trees now. We cleared a lot of leaves at the weekend, especially the heavy leaves from the magnolia which tend to just lie on the lawn and kill the grass.

This is our 6th autumn at Froggarts Cottage

Every year has been different. Last year was deep in snow and very cold. This year is relatively mild, wet and windy. The soil is wet for the first time all year. Living in the East Midlands we are still practically in a drought.
