Samhain means 'summers end' and is followed by the start of Winter. This year the festival of Samhain is on 7th November.
The ancients knew a three season year, spring, summer and winter.
I have no idea who is to blame for introducing the idea of an autumn to Ireland.
The grass is still growing and this will continue until the daylight temperature drops to below 10 degrees Centigrade.
Today the temperature is slightly over 14 degrees which means that Heron will have get the mower out of the shed and tidy up the garden. He might also cut a few newly grown nettles for Mrs H’s promised veggie stew.
So it being bright and sunny I took a few photos for you to view.
Our road still green
The Fuchsia still in bloom
Dancing ladies :)
The old Red Rose
Small yellow bloom ?
Just like the plant above the label fell off
and I have no idea what they are called :)
