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