The September Garden

The harvest is underway. The days are getting shorter, the colours of the landscape are hues of russet reds and bronze. You can sense and feel the transition of the seasons. The sun sits a little lower in the sky and your breadth appears in front of you when out rambling early in the morning.

All these magical hints to signal that the on-set of Autumn is upon us.

I usually sit back and observe this seasonal shift with pleasure. This year I am making more of a hands on contribution. To assist me, I have decided to pen monthly garden to-do lists. Please feel free to share these and exchange notes.

I'm sure there will be a lot of trial and error.
