This cannot be Autumn…..well not for a good while yet!


Spring Greens, Allestree Wood

Way past the midpoint of September and the light is still casting a green shadow over the woodland floor…..more like spring green than the darker green that marks the end of summer and the approach of Autumn. Here the bent Beech seem a long way from the time they start to turn a golden copper brown before the Autumn fall.

Not that I am complaining but very much enjoying this extended summer.
