We are definitely into Autumn now! Many of the summer flowers are still hanging on, but our lovely pink Nerine are in full flower and looking lovely.
In other parts of the Sandays garden there is a red glow, particularly from the American Ivy front and back.
We have ponies from Yarner Wood on the Warren; great to see them and they are doing a wonderful job grazing through the vegetation.
Birds are coming back too in very large numbers to winter on the estuary, and you can watch the sunrise over the water without having to get up ridiculously early.
The fallow deer at Powderham have their antlers and will be busy over the next few weeks!
There seems to be a particular abundance of berries everywhere this year, and trees are changing colour almost as you watch. Beautiful!
