A few Christmas cards go on sale. Small private plant nurseries show signs of preparing to sell winter pansies as the first mists of autumn drift early in the day across the hills. Newtown begins to wake up more slowly now as schools begin to think of starting again after a wet summer. The early morning stillness reappears before the madness of 'realising the school holidays are just about to finish' hits the 'buying school satchels and stationery' town. Enjoy!
