Early Morning, Allestree Lake, Derbyshire

Nearly, but not quite, at the halfway point of September yet it only seems like yesterday that we welcomed its arrival.  This morning we have grey skies with the occasional splash of sunshine, sunshine that seems to seek out the early autumnal colour that is gradually creeping in.

Our weather forecasters tell us we are due a mini heatwave over the coming weekend and next week.  If it comes about then I reckon it will speed up the approach of autumn proper. (looking out my window at this moment the chances of a heatwave look doubtful….but who knows).  Till then we can watch the changes as they happen….

The Squirrels have also been busy tackling any early falling conkers.. full tummies are needed prior to the colder weather
