There's a nip in the air in the early mornings - a sign of autumn. Other signs around the garden are the apples ripening on the tree; the conkers growing and ripening ready to fall; this fir tree is laden down with fir cones - they make good Christmas decorations; and the flowers are changing to seed heads ready to scatter and grow on as next year's plants.

The ducks haven't been around so much this summer. Their route from the river into the garden has been blocked by the bridge repair scaffolding and they are having to find different ways up the river bank. No doubt they'll be back in force once the scaffolding goes - better stock up on bird seed!!

It's time to cut the grass in the wild life area. This is done just once a year after the wild flowers have seeded ready for next year. If not managed the area would go back to waste scrub land. The area always looks bigger after the grass has been cut!

This is Cyril the Squirrel - yes we had to name him as he is such a frequent visitor to our bird feeder. He comes 2-3 times a day and eats more peanuts than the birds. He uses his tail to hand upside down to get at the peanuts - not sure how he manages to swallow again gravity!!

The repairs to the railway bridge are progressing, albeit rather slowly - yet there's years' worth of neglect to repair. The newly painted parts are a lovely dark green. When finished the bridge will have been changed from something of an eyesore into something worth looking at! All this work should help to safeguard the future of the railway line.
