From August onwards days start to get noticeably shorter. In the evenings we see “Witte Wieven” – famous shrouds of low hanging mist that weave themselves around the country side. The province of Overijssel is famous for these natural phenomena. The fruits and berries in our orchard are ripe and we enjoy the riches of our vegetable garden. A wide variety of toadstools appear in the garden as a sign that autumn will be upon us soon. The short life, shapes and colours of the many unique species continue to amaze us. As we approach October the leaves on the trees start to turn to their brilliant autumn colours. In a good year, the trees in our region resemble the spectacular splendour of the famous “Indian Summers” of North America.
