Indian Summer

It was the most glorious way to start the autumn season - the sun split the skies, making it the hottest September in decades, in fact,  it was indeed one of the hottest day of this year!

It was reported that the temperature reached 24C in some part of this region.
This unseasonably warm spell is said to be caused by an area of high pressure across much of central Europe, drawing up warm air from the south.

Whatever the reason may be, you can expect me to be in the garden, enjoying this fabulous abnormality albeit a short-lived one...

I decided to fill-up the gaps between the boulders that make up the steps at the small pond with pebbles.

Mushrooms found under the big tree.
I haven't figured out the species of this big tree (or the mushrooms) at the end of my garden. My guess it could be an old Ash tree, but I could be wrong.

Oh, how I wish I could go foraging with an expert forager.
