A very strange thing ...
We've had such blustery, gusty winds and stormy rain in Cornwall every day since the weekend. We returned, after a few days visiting family, to huge piles of leaves six inches deep outside our gate, it was like having to wade through snow
I managed a very brief walk between showers yesterday. In the hedgerows there were still a few wild strawberries from summer, still a few blackberries from early Autumn, very obvious signs of full-on "fall" and then the strangest thing ... pale yellow primroses flowering amongst the sooty earth and dead leaves and spring bulbs pushing up, already three and four inches long
It just made me feel a little bit sad for some reason
