The Day that never woke up…..

Well I guess everyday cannot be blue skies and sunshine.  Today was one of those days that never woke up, grey, an occasional bright spell but no sun, colder than of late, very still and ever so quiet.

For the past couple of days Art Students from Derby Uni. have been creating temporary art features in Big Wood.  They can only use natural materials found in the woods.  It is an activity that is on the students programme every autumn…each year the creations are different.  Here are just two woodland creations that may just give you a flavour of what they have been upto.

Not bad…They had a lot of fun, out in the fresh air rather than a lecture room…. and of course all socially distanced.   

For me, I still prefer what nature can produce….

Misty Mornings….and a touch of Autumnal Sunshine

OCTOBER-MIST_00094-(2)

It is that wonderful time of year when, some mornings, you are blessed with Mist and Low Sunshine…add autumnal colour and its a feast for the inner soul.

In these troubled times it is an even more welcome tonic…

Please Remember ….
