It might look colourful and bright here in these photos... but believe me, of late we have suffered gusty rain, torrential at times, cool nippy winds and clouds in abundance.
We formally announce that Summer in Oxfordshire must be over!
(especially as Mrs H is packing the sun umbrella away)
No!.. ROooarrR ..No! I MEeowwwWWWW don't do it..!
...STAY brolly, STAY! I can't wish Summer good bye ... not quite yet!
.. but the packing away has begun..!
Bing begins to iron out the creases...
... hoover up the trapped insects...
moreover, he goes forth to the VERY ends..
(nerves of steel)
"Departing summer hath assumed
An aspect tenderly illumed,
The gentlest look of spring;
That calls from yonder leafy shade
Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,
A timely carolling".
~ William Wordsworth, September
