Autumn is on it's way

Posted by cameladventures on September 18, 2012 at 7:30 AM

Summer has stretched on, the sun seemingly unwilling to leave us just yet.
Although it was a litlle late coming this year, the summer has been beautiful with lots of hot (sometimes almost unbearably hot!) sunny days.

Today is overcast and much cooler (though still shorts and T-shirt temperature).
I think autumn really is on it's way now.
The hazelnut trees are dropping their nuts for me to collect from the grass and the apple trees are full to bursting so I shall have to start picking those too.

Below:  some photos from our summer at Valhalla farm

Puddle & Pixie are no longer little ducklings.....



Our neighbour's pigeons are regular visitors in the poultry pen. They particularly like the duck pond.....


 I'm not sure if this one fell in or just felt like taking a bath (when he climbed out he shook his feathers and acted all "cool" as if it was all part of his daily personal hygiene routine :)  .....


We have some mint next to the front doorsteps which the butterflies loved (at any point during each day there would be at least five or six butterflies there) and, later on, also the honey bees.....



Of all our visitors, the little gecko-type creatures are the most shy .....


We have been very busy with our 'Dog Holidays' this year and have had lots and lots of lovely guests. So, Phoenix has enjoyed the summer with lots of new friends and playmates ..... (1st photo, Phoenix, now all grown up) .....
