Autumn has its beauties too

Another summer has gone by and autumn came, dry and cold.

The odd flowers are still blooming, the lemons are getting yellow – first real lemon harvest since we planted trees a few years ago – nature takes its time.

The valley is foggy in the mornings and the animals more hungry. Would have been nice to get some more grass growth before the cold but there has hardly been any rain. I fear we will change from too dry to muddy wet, just like a few years ago – think it’s been 3 years since that horrific wet winter that led us to building that horse shelter. Need to get the horse shelter sorted and cleaned out. Maybe a water supply -after two years, but the fence rails were done a few weeks ago.
