Hi everyone, I have had a very busy and enjoyable summer telling stories all over the South East, to more than a 1,000 people, of all ages. And now as the heat of summer subsides, into the mellowness of autumn, with all of its riches from nature dripping in the hedgerows, ripening in the fields and on the trees. In an exquisite patchwork of bright gold’s, rich reds, deep purples, yielding yellows and ripening russets. I look forward to this wonderful season and the places that I will be telling stories at in September.
