Summer along a Woodland Path…..


A Derbyshire Woodland Path

A walk along a woodland path takes some beating at any time of the year.  But at this time of the year, when in the middle of August, signs of autumn start to appear….. it is extra special.  Only small signs now, but a reminder that we are heading for the season of ” mellow fruitfulness” .

Not everyone looks forward to autumn.  I have mixed feelings.  Autumn itself is a wonder of nature, packed with colour and rich smells.  But it also a sign that the darker days, often the wilder weather, is only a short breath away.

So enjoy what remains of August……  and also lets hope we get an ‘Indian summer’, that would be a big bonus in this strange year.

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

15th August
