I must apologize (or are you relieved?) for being a little neglectful recently. Chaos has been reigning, more than usual, in the Ratz household and so I haven’t written any posts for a while, nor checked out my fellow bloggers as much as I should have done. I hope that normal service will be resumed soon.
Thanks to Hurricane Bertha, the UK was treated to the coldest August since 1993. The previous eight months had been warmer than average. Now we are in September and we have had quite a few mild and sunny days. I believe the blackbirds may have sneaked in a second brood.
A short bimble around the garden seems to indicate that Autumn is on the way.
The roses have given way to rose hips, you might like to revisit my post here.
The blackberries are also ripening nicely, along with the apples, they should make a nice crumble. I blathered about brambles in this post here.
Also the quince is ripening, if you wish to see the blossoms that produced this fruit, then take a look here
Well, this post will have to be like me, short and sweet. Take care gentle readers, until next time.
