It might be the last of the Autumn….

Early sun…and more than a few folk out enjoying a breath of fresh autumnal air, with their dogs, for a morning walkies.  Shadows are both dark and long but once one is in the open that autumnal sun is stark and bright.

Many trees have now lost the leaves and with them the colours of autumn.  Thankfully the Oak is making up for them with bold splashes of gold and brown, they will loose their leaves slowly over the months ahead, some hanging on till spring arrives and the new buds push the old leaves off the branches.

The adjacent River Derwent that has been in flood, causing much stress over the past few weeks, has now dropped back just a little.  It is still running high, fast and rather murky so yesterdays and today sun giving a dry spell much welcomed by those in the flooded areas.

  1. Don’t be to certain about that! The seasons are a bit shifty these days, We have had heavy snowfalls 3 times already, only to see it all rain away a couple of days later! At the present all our snow has gone and the weather forecasts predict heavy rain for the next 5 days!
