A Dazzling Start…….

After days of grey damp starts this morning was bright and cheerful..  A bright Autumnal sun cleared the horizon so we headed off to Big Wood for an early quick walk…too good an opportunity to miss…

_DSC9559_00012qqq It was the turn now of Silver Birch leaves to glow on the woodland floor adding warmth to those areas of the wood, where the sun probably wouldn’t reach, now that its arc is so low in the sky……

It must have been early, once we were out of the woods, there were still no one about.  Makes a change, a change that left Buster rather puzzled….nobody to play with !

As for the day that started full of promise……  well, we had the best of the day.  The sun decided that playing ‘hide and seek’ would be fun……  it spent much more time hiding, just teasing us occasionally.

No matter the weather……

A November Evening……

November------_0400

November days get shorter and the nights longer.  Some days wild, other much more placid.  When the sun does grace us with its presence the evenings can be rather magical.

The winds and rain have taken their toll and many trees are now skeletons, whilst the Oak still hangs on, reluctant to acknowledge the approach of winter.  Now, I know the Sheep do have thick wooly coats, but I still feel rather sorry for them.  Out overnight in the open and not knowing what the weather has in store for them next.

Please Remember ….

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