Summer here in Fayssac has been really wonderful this year, plenty of hot and sun drenched days and the odd crazy storm to cool things down, entertaining us with illuminating light shows. We have had lots of fabulous guests that have made our summer abundant with fun, laughter and great memories that will last with us for a very long time.
It has been so hot down here with little rain, the trees have already begun to loose their leaves making us realise that autumns calling.
The ground is so dry that cracks in the earth are the norm creating an amazing motorway of patterns.
The sunflowers that recently blazed their yellow glow over the country side are all now bowing their heads. They will be left until they are almost black, the farmers waiting for the seeds to be dripping with oil before they harvest them.
But as we begin to notice the subtle changes, mother nature gives us some lovely gifts to help us on our way.
The wild damsons are laying heavy and luscious on the branches, they are inviting me to taste their warm and sweet flesh, whilst eating them the purple juice runs down my hands, there to be savoured later as i walk Barnaby Pickles in the evening glow of the sun.
The blackberry bushes are also brimming with big bold berries, ill be picking these over the weekend for a jam making session.
Summers not over yet! but the autumn hints are there, so we have to fill up on the sunshine and warmth ready for the cold winter nights.
Are you all noticing the changes or is it just me?
Have a lovely weekend everyone and heres to more warm sunny days before Autumn rolls in.
