Dateline: Cattaraugus County, western New York state
Hello again after a long time, due to extremely erratic internet (Vodafone mobile wifi (sic) is not to be recommended) in London and France. But we're back briefly in Cattaraugus County now and to a very different garden, full of the easy-going Autumn disarray, which I love.
Who needs New England?
And some geraniums still bloom among the fallen leaves.
The chipmunk acorn relay has clearly been and gone, the miniature stripy teams shinning up and down, up and down the big oak tree, some breaking off twigs, others gathering the spoils below. The
lawn grass is littered with debris and discarded acorn hats. This was a bumper year for acorns so Chippy and co will be happy.
Less welcome guests clearly made themselves at home while we were away.
