A Life in the Country ~ The Progress of Autumn through a Permaculture Landscape…

Out walking Jack in the early morning sunshine and spying hundreds of silvery webs on the hedgerows, mostly with a lone spider in the centre of each.

The Sedums and Rudbeckias are in full bloom as the colours of the leaves golden up…this is one of the best times of the year to go walking.

We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving. And we all have some power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.- Louisa May Alcott

Leaves along the grassy verge on the laneway up through the land of Bealtaine Smallholding…
