I love the autumn and this is the view even in the rain
This is from Kathryns window looking straight down the garden. It is really only the last 7 - 10 days that the leaves have changed. They are still dropping, you can see there are still alot of trees with leaves on, which fro us is exceptionally late. But look at the colours... the green of the lawns, orange berries, autumnal orange and red of the leaves. I love it!
This as you can see is just to the left of the last pic.
Again you have a fantastic contrast between the different shades of gree and the deep reds! When Mark retires I would love to go to New England in the fall, I believe it is quite spectacular!
I have decided not to beat myself up about the chickens!!! As much as I like the idea of them free rangeing in the garden it is just not practical, especially in this weather! This is them today sheltering in the eglu from the rain, the stalks hanging down are the remains of the Chard from the morning! They have plenty of room to scratch around, they have good food, lots of treats and are cosy amd warm at night! I could take the run off the eglu to give them more room, but at the moment that is the only shelter they have from the rain! We have looked at another part of the garden up by the veg patch, where we could construct a run with roof, but needs some more thinking about! Until then they will have to stay where they are!!!
