It came … and it went


It came …. and it went.  No not just the jet plane but the sunshine.

This Friday started dull and un-promising, then from literally ‘out of the blue’ came a clear sky and some fantastic sunshine.  We enjoyed about 10 minutes of autumnal sunshine, then just as quickly as it arrived, it disappeared over the horizon.

Its brief visit did light up the Oak trees in and around our woodland.  The Oak , as is there way hang onto the now dry leaves. Leaves that as soon as there is any sunshine suddenly glow golden brown.

Elsewhere the wind and rains, plus one very brief frost, have ensured that the majority of trees have now lost there leaves, now just swaying skeletons….


As to the weather….  the sun has tried to brighten up the day but the cloud, a forerunner to the rain that is to come, has been winning out.

Just think in one months time we will just have past the Winter Solstice… Time does pass so quickly.
