Autumn has well and truly arrived here in Salt. The Virginia Creeper that covers a wall on the garage started to ‘turn’ a couple of weeks ago and has been this lovely rich colour for a while. It won’t be long before the leaves are lost completely.
The front driveway is covered with acorns. I think we need to import some of the red squirrels and pine martens from our garden in
to ‘hoover’ them up for us. There are a couple of grey squirrels in the large oak tree but they appear to have small appetites and are averse to working overtime! France
One consequence of Tom being in the
is that since we have Tom’s car here, we can put Tim’s mid-life crisis to bed for the winter. We (well if I’m honest, mostly Tim) spent yesterday cleaning and polishing it to showroom standard, and it is now in the garage covered by a specially made hoisted cover, lest any speck of dust dare to fall on it!

Whilst we were at it Tom’s car got the same treatment, and very smart it looks too. I love driving the polo and will probably use it for work. However, it doesn’t have heated seats, so in the very cold weather I might need to think again!
Other signs of Autumn are visible all around, and we need to make the most of the lovely weather before it gets truly autumnal. On Friday evening we were cold in bed, and needed to not only change the duvet, but also put the central heating on.

The roses are still blooming beautifully, better than they were in the summer.
