Garden in September

A honey bee hanging upside down from a raspberry flower.

Back in cold and windy Ireland after a brief Portuguese interlude. The weather in September didn't improve after August and the autumnal feels have fully set in. It's time to pull out all the cozy jumpers and sweaters from the back of the wardrobe. Time to start eating apple pies for breakfast, getting cozy by the fire and prepare for the long and dark evenings to come. 

There's still plenty life and colour in the garden, but I think you can sense the change. I feel it was only yesterday I was cooling my feet in the river. Now I would probably freeze just by touching my toe of the water. We have had some crazy winds that helped the trees loose their leaves and in the blink of an eye, it's autumn.
