Monday started so well……


After a week of dull, damp (though no rain) and cold days we woke on Monday to a glorious sunny morning.  The sun of course remained low casting long shadows but it also found its way into the Willow Coppices.  They need thinning now but have been providing great cover for the ferns thriving in the damp grass…


It was also surprisingly warm, only a light fleece for a walk round the lake.  Despite the leaf drop of last week there are still some clinging on… and this bright sun continued to bring out the last of the autumnal colours….



Bright as the sun was it lacked that richness of a few weeks ago.  Nor was it to last.  By Lunch time the dull grey sky was back and a thicker fleece called for.  Nor is the forward forecast encouraging.  The much needed rain is due and with it will be some gales.

As for Monday morning it was far from moody and I guess a bonus to enjoy… 🙂

  1. Beautiful photos as always, but that last one? Oh, my absolute favorite! It just speaks to me on so many levels: my favorite season of autumn, the sunshine poking through the trees, the serenity of the water, the quiet and solitude of a place without people, and the empty bench just waiting for me to sit upon. ❤

  2. I did react but the site ordered me to first agree with the cookies. Did that a few times already. Weird.

    I had said that I loved the photos especially because we have dull and grey weather with a very cold thin wind.
