Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness

The romantic poet John Keats in his poem ‘To Autumn’ described this time of year as the ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’.

It’s the time to gather in fruits from gardens and hedgerows, to store or preserve them in jams and jellies or in the freezer, to eat during the long winter.

There really is so much to enjoy at this time of year, whether you are in your garden or out in the beautiful countryside with so many late flowering plants and a rich array of birds. But if you are venturing out into the countryside you would be well advised to take an umbrella with you. This is also the season of heavy rain showers!
