Autumn Equinox colours

With the Autumn equinox upon us and a definite chill on the breeze a trip to the allotment today made me think of the preconceptions of seasonal colours we have, emphasised through school as we made ‘splodged’ leaf paintings and we sang the harvest songs having managed to pass on the marrow glut from home to the local community who would have preferred the old tin of sardines!

This morning we picked boxes of raspberries and bunches of sweet peas as well as carrots and beans so I thought I would provide an alternative to the conker colours and rusty hues we expect at this time of year, in acknowledgement to the Autumn sun, with the frost just round the corner…

The tip we received from the wise old-timers at the allotment today was to whistle while you pick raspberries to save yourself from eating too many. I understand the truth in that!
