Even on a very Dull Day


A carpet of golden leaves.  Yep, even on a very dull day with endless grey clouds, the colours of autumn manage to shed some bright light onto the day.   It may be, what in today’s world, we call a virtual light…. but who cares, It does a great deal for the soul, lifting the spirits.

Now if the “Country Folklore” is correct we are heading for a cold and bleak winter.  The reasoning for this statement, is the prolific crop of Berries.  True or not, the Birds will certainly enjoy a welcome winter feast.

Enjoy what remains of your autumn….but

Please Remember ….

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

    1. With all the rain we have been “enjoying” it has kept the greenery all,very lush…. there is the saying spring greens, well this year we have a double helping. One in spring and another now in autumn. Temperatures are also unseasonably high, bobbing around 13c. Keeps things growing for awhile longer. But those berries are a blessing and a worry, it may be folklore that suggests a bad winter. There is also a bumper crop of acorns, vital winter food for many birds and mammals, and they are busy feasting and storing. My experiences seem to go with that theory so I am getting my thermals out early 🙂
