Autumn in Mayo. A Monday Moment.


Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness!

Close bosom friend of the maturing sun;

Conspiring with him how to load and bless

With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run;

apple branch

To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,

And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;

To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells

With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,

Bonnie buzybee

And still more, later flowers for the bees,

Until they think warm days will never cease,

For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.

To Autumn by John Keats 1795-1821

In Meteorology Autumn begins on 1st September in the Northern Hemisphere, therefore meteorologists consider autumn to be the months of September, October and November. I think the above poem by John Keats aptly describes this autumn morning here at Haremoon cottage while I and Bonnie take our early Monday morning walk to see how the garden grows. Bonnie will be one year old in a few days time.
