Summer falls down
Yesterday , I took a short walk along the banks of the River Severn. The water level seemed full
, with all the recent rain coming down from the Welsh hills.
The sun was out and the going was; as the song said ,easy. There was little activity on the river and only a couple of pleasure cruisers passed by.
A posse of walkers came by heading for the end of their journey at nearby Tewkesbury. They looked happy and contented. Gradually I discerned the clouding of the skies and the slow and steady falling of temperature. This proved to be the end of summer in Gloucestershire.
Today has been colder and grey of aspect and I gave the lawns the last cutting rites of the season.
