Signs of Autumn

The older and feebler of the two horse chestnuts is already turning yellow.  When we got up this morning there was mist among the trees.

My mother got stung by a hornet in the night. Yes, again. Ailz and I walked round the house and located the new nest.  The pest controller said the colony he smoked out a fortnight ago was last year's and we could expect this year's brood along shortly- in time for the fruit going rotten. There's a lot of fruit to go rotten in Kent.
