Do you see what I see? A tree beginning to show its Autumn colours? In July?
When I was tidying up my garden earlier this week, I noticed that some of the flowers that I associate with September are already in flower - anemones, montbretia (coppertips, falling stars). This chestnut tree really astonished me, though, when I noticed it on my way across the park to the shops this morning!
But I suppose when you remember that my roses started to bloom a couple of months early, in April, this year, it's not surprising that the leaves are starting to turn - in the middle of July!
