I guess this gate like many of us after the Christmas and New Year Celebrations could do with some care and attention to ease us back into work mode.
The weather over this period has been rather kind. Sunshine and a light wind has dried the carpet of autumn leaves…. reviving them from there dark brown soggy state to a bright orange and golden brown once again. It will not last of course as time and weather will see them rot down and return to the earth.
Till then they give a bright and colourful boost to the woods….. even on a dull day.
