Continuing a look at the seasons in Éowyn's walled garden...

Autumn in the Walled Garden

Gardens at Baddesley Clinton

The days were shorter now; and stiff breezes stirred the leaves of the trees that grew beyond the garden, sending in occasional drifts of brown and gold trespassers.

Inside the shelter of the walls, leaves were also being shrugged off by apple trees, rose bushes, and others, as they began to ease towards winter sleep.

A lad cleared beds of exhausted annuals watched by Éowyn, sitting in the thatched shelter, her feet curled beneath her and a notebook in her hand. She was planning the groundwork for the future.

Remembering Ithilien autumns when he could see no future, Faramir smiled.
