Today’ marks the autumn equinox and here are some hints and tints from my local Derbyshire park

fading out the green around the pools
mallards surveying the changes
Reed mace or tough, rough rushes hence ‘bulrush’
bird cherry (prunus padus) cherries
seedpods of the tall yellow irises which graced the pools in early summer
ripening alder cones
yellowing in the hornbeam foliage
convolvulus vine dying gracefully
shedding seeds of the rosebay willow herb
