Autumn




Ah Autumn!
In autumn a woman's thoughts turn lightly to ... snuggling up with a good book .... no

Autumn, autumn, how do I love thee, let me count the ways ... Leaves everywhere, nip in the air, gutters need cleaning out .... nah.

Tis autumn, and the slithy toves did gyre and .... no.

    1. Bizarrely I DID hear a cuckoo (New Zealand shining cuckoo) the other day. AND a grey warbler which it parasitizes. I think it has been an unseasonably warm autumnumnum here.
