Following Sue's excellent instructions,
I used Pic Monkey to make a collage
of the last few days when summer took a curtain call.
the air raid shelter wall at the bottom of our garden
which has such beautiful brick shades, I think it deserved a picture to itself,
Grantchester meadows and the River Cam in Cambridge
whence we returned our son for yet more Japanese studying,
(we had tea at The Orchard),
a few grasses from a nursery in Sussex to rectify the rather disastrous
meadow grass experiment,
(first year great, second year thistles, moon daisies and narrow-leaved plantain
overwhelmed the thirty six other weedier weeds)
and finally my Cornus kousa chinensis,
displaying its fine autumn colour.
