After having been a long time lurker on this forum, I have felt the time was right (also plucked up the courage) to finally break my silence Now I know that there may well be brickbats heading my way for even mentioning autumn this early in July, and I'm also well aware that this thread could well be closed due to its untimeliness, but the first signs of autumn are becoming more and more noticeable with each passing day... Today amongst other things, I noticed my first Lords 'n' Ladies plant (with big green juicy berries on it) nestling amongst the nettles... Plus the nights are starting to draw in now aren't they? Now I know that most people will immediately start thinking of yet more wind and rain at the slightest mention of of the coming season, but I don't see autumn like that... Personally I see autumn as a Keatsian season with 'mists and mellow fruitfulness', with that wonderful autumn smell So, lets start the ball rolling for another year, and this is personally what I would like autumn 2016 to pan out like... September: A month of gentle warmth, and sunshine, but with a noticeable chill and slight dampness in the air come evening time. October: Hopefully this will be the month when we see those first mists turn into proper fogs, but also I would like to see plenty of those sunny days, when the air has that hazy/smokey/golden appearance to it, along with trees of red, gold, orange and yellow. November: This is the time when I'd like to see the first proper frost of the season - frost days, along with fog days, and also a few red line wind storms as well, plus a bit of sunshine as well So what about other peoples thoughts hopes and wishes for autumn 2016? PS. Mods, if I've put this in the wrong place, then feel free to move or delete as required.
