Today is the equinox –

Today is the equinox – 12 hours of daylight, 12 hours of darkness. From now until March, there’ll be more hours of dark than light. Sigh.
Still, judging by the trees on the nursery, as long as we don’t get any gales, we should be in for a pretty spectacular autumn colour display. A lime tree there is already turning a beautful bright yellow, and a large Himalayan spindle bush is taking on rich red and pink colouring.
