September Autumn Day

A touch of summer lingered in flowers and butterflies on a September wander through Didsbury's Parsonage Gardens and the Fletcher Moss Alpine Garden.  Autumn tree crimsons were beginning to burnish leaves, but a dragonfly flew past, as fairytale huge and unlikely as the giant rhubarb like leaves round the lily pond.  A gentle kind of day,  where volunteers were cheerfully planting out bulbs by the tennis courts, it was an afternoon with a magical touch, one to appreciate.
