Spent a beautiful afternoon cutting down old perennials and bits of shrubs and generally tidying up in the garden. Filled our "green" recycling bin which the council collects next week, and put the soft stuff in our compost bin. Well, we do try!
Then took the dog out, and the low sun in the park made the fallen beech leaves really glow - a lovely deep russet red. We are so lucky to have the park right at our back garden, though in the summer you have to watch out for flying golf balls (there is a small golf course behind our fence!) and young teenagers can get a bit silly and noisy! But generally, we tend to regard it as part of our "estate"!!
