Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness

Autumn is gently nuzzling in. But summer lingers on with strong sunshine, warm breezes and gentle rain between the cooler mornings and nights. All good for gardeners and plenty of time, we hope, to catch up on all those ‘tidying up’ jobs we love so much. John Keats so vividly brings this season to life.

“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-eves run;
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,
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.”
