Sure Signs It’s Autumn
It’s definitely autumn at Les Fragnes. Here are the signs:
The wood is stacked and ready…
…and, since this morning, being burned.
It’s cool and damp so that means happy pigs with lovely soft ground to get muddy in!
But not happy turkeys. They seem a little wary.
And well they might. The freezer’s been cleaned out and is waiting to be filled with autumn produce…
The carp pellets have arrived so we can feed them during the cold months and keep them in top-top condition.
Toadstools of varying degrees of toxicity are popping up everywhere.
The guinea pigs have been moved into their indoor quarters.
Treacle has moved herself to what she considers to be hers (although we disagree).
And Lucky has taken up residence on the sofa and clearly has no intention of going anywhere anytime soon.
Yup, chilly autumn is here.
