The leaves are turning and it’s time for long walks and log fires! Alasdair has been wielding the axe, chopping wood and stacking the log pile. Today it’s jolly cosy here inside the farmhouse.
Outdoors the beech trees are now a gorgeous golden colour. The river was low yesterday barely trickling over the river bed but has risen overnight with some rainfall. Our little ‘beach’ at the water’s edge has transformed itself yet again, caused by the with the movement of the water running through the burn. Our landscape here is certainly ever changing.
The last of the swallows may have finally left us for Africa but we are excited about our visitor coming from the USA next weekend. Our old friend Jonathan Wright from the wonderful Chanticleer Garden in Pennsylvania is coming to spend time with us and explore the Galloway Forest and visit some nearby gardens. Can’t wait.
