It’s officially Autumn and aren’t we feeling it, quite a change and it feels quite sudden not allowing time for us to acclimate. One weekend we were sat watching our son at a football match almost getting sunstroke and the next match it was as winter boots and a down coat!
Welcome to Autumn! It has been a bit of a shock to the system having a chill in the air after we have been used to almost tropical temperatures. Still, there's days where we are not sure if we should be putting away the summer wardrobe just yet. This time before the cold really starts to hit is quite pleasant. Fresh and cool first thing then warming up late morning, perfect for a stroll. We are making the most of being able to get the washing out on the line still!
How many trees can you name? Do you recognise a tree variety from its leaves, nuts or seeds? I think we all wish we had better knowledge of our natural surroundings, and this month could give you the chance to get to know your green neighbourhood giants a little better!
Lawns – so it’s a busy time on your lawn in October, but here’s a tip to make life easier! For those final mowings of the season, use the mower to shred the leaves and add organic humus to the lawn – it saves you the problem of sweeping them up!
Autumn is with us and let’s hope the good weather continues, to raise our spirits and shorten the winter!
Petrol is changing to E10 this September in the UK. But what does that mean for your Mountfield lawnmower?
Clear up and tidy! A bit of thought and action now will prevent trouble next year.
