An Improvement in the Weather….well being honest, just a small improvement


Friday and the weather made a small change….it didn’t rain all day.  But when it did it was heavy.  Then the sun would make a break for it when the clouds were at there thinnest. It was always short lived.  Sometimes it was pouring down and sun shining all at the same time and, like early this morning, that sun was casting a strange glow over the lake.

Whilst much if not most of the autumn leaves have fallen there are spots that even on a dull day, and one like today wet, still hold a colourful attraction…


Even the bracken, now brown and brittle adds a spot of colour to a dark corner


I guess we can say that autumn has now past, short lived this year, but it has still taken us thru to mid November.  Sadly that now takes us in to the darker damp days of November.   So being positive…. winter will be here soon and maybe some real frosts.


Maybe winter will be short lived

16th November
