It's been a wonderfully dry and sunny September with warm days and brilliant dawns and sunsets. But despite good weather and the presence of a few late swallows, autumn is definitely here; almost overnight the Katsura tree in the Vicarage garden has turned a buttery yellow.

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Robert Frost
