Autumn Musings

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood

And sorry I could not travel both

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth


The famous poem by Robert Frost always comes into my head at autumn, even during a late autumn like this year’s. Technically, the patterns of the leaves has been about two weeks later than average this year, due to the relatively low temperatures. But even if late, the colours have been as spectacular as ever. Lots of dry and bright sunny days have allowed large amounts of sugars to concentrate in leaves, producing more of the anthocyanin pigment.

We’ve had more holiday clubs, with visits by local children, and as usual they really enjoyed meeting the animals of Juniper Hall.

  1. Hi. My name is Judy Davidson. I live in Merimbula New South Wales Australia. I am currently helping a friend write her memoirs, and we have just finished a section where she talked about a field study trip to Juniper Hall in 1948. She particularly remembers Mr Hutchings who lived there with his family and headed up the ‘experiment’ of having a group of female students from a school in London stay there for a week. It was so fascinating to me that I googled Juniper Hall and here we are! My friend is 82.
    What a great place Juniper Hall looks to be!
    Warm regards
    Judy Davidson
