After a few days of glorious late, summer weather we’re back to autumn and the poet John Keats’ ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’.



The Katya or Katy apples are one of the first varieties to ripen.  It’s tricky to free one fruit from a tight packed cluster without sending the whole lot tumbling to the ground.

Two photos taken yesterday under an umbrella as the mist turned to drizzle.
