The changing seasons

This morning whilst walking the dog it was plain to see that the season was changing. There is now slightly less light in the morning than a month ago and the grass is now heavy each morning with dew. There was a mist rolling in from the north downs.
The hedgerows fruits are starting to show signs of ripening, sloes have a faint purple blush and the blackberries are starting to turn from green to red.
The summer rushes forward to autumn and hopefully with the rain we have had after the mini heat wave and with warm days still likely we may have a bountiful autumn. I am hoping for sloes, for making into sloe whiskey. Blackberries for jams and jelly. Rosehips for syrup and haws and rowanberries for turning into jellies.
