Dreaming of a pond...

Autumn is all about the light. As the sun drops lower towards the horizon and the temperatures fall, we get longer shadows, shorter days, mists, dew and sunlight filtering through the leaves, falling obliquely to light up the last summer flowers like jewels.

I've been dreaming of a pond for the garden for ages but today that dream is a step closer. This huge, now empty, flowerbed will be the site for it. It is surprising just how much space the flowerbed took up in the lawn and half of it will be reseeded with grass. It is sad to see the QMMFB go but it had outgrown it's space and usefulness. All around are reminders that summer is over, not least of all the virginia creeper that is putting on a fantastic show this year.
