It is also goodbye to be black eyed Susan’s in the garden. Their yellow crowns have now almost completely disappeared and I am left with the “black eyes” which I will leave for a while. However, they will be back again in their full glory next year in summer, nature’s way of life.
The apple tree now has no more apples. Last year I had two containers full of apples and was baking Swiss apple tarts until early Spring. This year we only have enough for one large bowl, again nature’s way of apple tree recovery.
And so with a last view through the ears of grass it is time to wave goodbye to the good days of Autumn. Perhaps some of your are now eating the last pumpkin pie or enjoying a soup from the remains of the pumpkin. I am mixing some chestnuts in my red cabbage which is another result of the Autumn harvest. It was a good Autumn with the grand finale on the 30th September of my No. 1 son’s 50th birthday. 30th September is also St.Urs Day who is the patron saint of our local Swiss town of Solothurn.
See you in October.
