So, it’s the second day of October, and October is the second month of autumn. And the weather today is autumnal. An English poet, John Keats, wrote a poem “To Autumn”. He described the month – “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”. And the weather is definitely foggy today, especially on the spine of the country. The bus went through Goonown, the “downs of fear” and Goonbell, the “far downs”, and it was hard to see anything. It’s time for nuts, as well. But it is too early for these chestnuts. They are falling from the tree but they are not ripe. They are still unripe. The prickly husks are green and the nuts are white or small.
