A feeling of loneliness
Despite the light frost the other night there is still colour in the garden. The golden rod (solidago) is in full spate.
The euonymus is colouring up nicely and the fruits are bright.
And the helianthus ‘Lemon Queen’ is still looking lovely.
But, at the weekend, the swallows left us to start their long journey to Africa. I miss their chattering as they rested on the roof and their acrobatic displays over the garden and skimming across the pond. I wish them well and can’t wait until they bring summer with them again next April.
It’s quiet when ours leave too.

I just happened across your while perusing WordPress blogs. This one inspired me to get the lemon queen sunflower!
