I couldn’t Resist……

_DOI9161aaa

It has been raining today, and whilst getting wet,  I still  couldn’t resist pausing and “harvesting” these Autumnal Gems……   of course there will be many more to fall, but some how these early arrivals looked rather grand.

Enjoy the colourful season ahead… but also….

Thoughtful Thursday……. It is on it way

Sycamore - Copy

Another marker in a year that seems to a flown past us faster than usual.  Yes, it is the last day of September and autumn is knocking on our door.

Everyday there are a few more leaves that have turned in colour  and fallen to the ground.  Not many as yet but the pace will quicken over the next few weeks. Autumn is on the way.

Enjoy the colourful season ahead… but also….

Late September……

_DOI9144qqq

A typical late September day.  Temperatures have fallen but the sun still shines very brightly.  The sky is blue, but sometimes hides behind some fast moving clouds…..  darker clouds are never far away and rain expected at intervals throughout the day.

_DOI9126qqNow that the sun is lower in our skies the shadows are longer and seem much darker.  That same sun does highlight the early autumnal colours, teasing us, but the best is yet to come once October get underway.

_DOI9140qqq

 The dominant colour is still green, though it has to be said the tint is now much darker on the trees before they start to adopt their autumn colours.

Just nice to be out and about, able to potter at a leisurely pace, pause and just gaze..

We are just hoping that autumn will be kind as well as colour packed.

(nor did we get wet… the rain gave us the courtesy of waiting till we reach home)

The seasons change, but our strange human world continues to be far from normal…. so,

Not a Bad Morning…..

_DOI9088qq

Another sunny start to a September morning.  Forecasters say it will not last past lunchtime…. so best make the most of the mornings walk.

There is a change in the weather.  It is cooler, we have a very strong breeze which appears to be rising but overall it is a bright fresh invigorating morning.  It is also more apparent that autumn is on the way. So join me on a mornings walkies with Buster…

The blues skies started to turn grey, the River looked darker and there was indeed a damp feel by the time we headed for home, that morning glow had gone..

As for home…well Buster was pleased to be heading for a comfier chair than the this resting place..

_DOI9070qq

and the forecasters were right…… it rained, but by then we were home

Working hard, relaxing whatever you are doing… as always….
