Shifting seasons

July 30, 2014


We are used to seeing spring arrive earlier and earlier, but autumn?

From mid-July, changes I would not have expected to see until late August or early September, are happening now.

Mid-July leaves turning brown on horse chestnuts.

Mid-July hazelnuts ready. In the last few days hazelnuts falling off the bushes, and the last day or so, the squirrels stripping the bushes. I would not usually expect until September, unfortunately then the squirrels get in first and strip the bushes. Last couple of years I have managed to get a few, as they start falling off the bushes early, catching the squirrels unaware.

Last week or so blackberries ripe and ready to eat. As a child, blackberries would be ripening and ready to eat last two weeks of August.

Plums have been available for over a week. Plums usually in August.

Who speaks the sound of an echo? Who paints the image in a mirror? Where are the spectacles in a dream? Nowhere at all. — Lakshminkara

A strange exhibition. It traces the life of Polly from a little girl of 8 to her death at 80. Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

Enter through a garden shed, pass through a garden, through a secret tunnel into a garden in Spring, through to the most dream-like sequence dreams of Summer, here we meet a fortune teller who we can meet later again in Autumn, then death in the cold of Winter.
