Eily’s Report – 31st October

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a cáirde and welcome to my Report.

The sun is shining warm and bright on this lovely Bank Holiday Monday. Looking out my window as I write, my favourite tree in the garden my little Japanese maple is shedding it’s red leaves, forming a red carpet on the ground beneath. A little further down my Raspberry canes are weighed down with fruit.  My neighbours Cosmos are still lording the view with their grand display of  purple blossoms. Up to eight or ten feet high  they have stood up like no other, to the punishment of the weather for the past number of months. Cosmos will definitely be on my list for next Season DV.  I will miss my little red tree when the leaves are all gone, but it’s bare limbs will reveal the far off hills which it has been hiding from my view for months. There is always a redeeming feature.
