Welcome to Gawsworth Village.
September 2016

new hall link



It has been a mixed year in our garden.  The gladioli and agapanthus have been unwilling to flower but there are more buds on the rhododendrons than I have seen for some years.
John Lea reports a similar situation in the wild life on his land.   He takes part in the Big Butterfly Count and notes that this year numbers are dramatically down on all species except the small white.  He thinks the wet weather destroyed many of them at the pupae stage.  The news is better about bumblebees which are  thriving; they can work in cooler weather than honeybees.  John was pleased to observe that this year the range of their species seems unusually large.
The TV weather man commented that autumn begins on 1st September for meteorologists and there have been a surprising number of falling leaves in Church Lane recently.  The summer is certainly hasting away but, preparing the items for the September magazine, I see there is much to enjoy in the village in the coming weeks. I am looking forward to the scarecrows!
