Yesterday November 1st started rather damp and dull. There was a hint of colour in the sky but little sign of promise. Overnight the Ash trees have dropped there leaves, I guess yesterday mornings frost, the first this season, helped them make up there minds…..now just majestic skeletons. I suppose for the time of year we need to expect more mornings like this.
By lunchtime the day had gone through a remarkable change and that sun we have been able to take for granted returned, even though it was a tad chilly…. the Lakeside looked fabulous
Those elusive autumn colours are becoming more dominant. I still think we are going to have a mass drop before they all change to into there autumn colours. Green is still dominant but the Chestnuts are setting the autumnal trend..
Nice though to enjoy a warmish and sunny November afternoon….not a bad start to the 11th Month.
