20th November and after a week of storms and high winds, peace, warmth and calm descends on the garden. The warm autumn sun makes the place sing. Over at the Tall Trees Allotment site things are really coming on. The first strim has been done and reduced the waist high grass to a manageable level and the first signs of a series of compost bins are appearing. And we have at least another allotment pitch now the brambles have gone from ‘Brambly Corner’ – which isn’t any more!
Above the traffic noise you can here the birds singing in the trees. A bird of prey circles ahead spying his supper, he dives. Robin comes and sits on the fence keeping company. Worms for supper.
