Autumn is here

Wandering around the woods yesterday with the dappled sunlight shining through the trees we stumbled upon some super mushrooms which confirmed that autumn has finally arrived. So goodbye to the shorts and endless watering, and hello to layers of clothes and Manna grown soup and stews.
