Fall-ing into October

Categories: Lens Friends and The Garden 2017.

  We are into a new season now.  September finished off with a really hot spell, in fact some of the days were hotter than the in July and August.  A quick rain storm abruptly brought that weather to an end and in a matter of minutes the temperature started dropping down.
