It is a bit more like Autumn…… just a bit


It was not a promising start…. then as if someone had waved a magic wand, the sun broke through. Certainly throughout the day some dark clouds rolled by making our world just a little dark, then blink it was sunny again.

At last the Beech trees have started to turn, staring with the younger ones.

Fly Agaric are having a bumper season and the berries on the Holly tell us that Christmas is on its way…

Not a bad morning for a walk…. and once again reminding us that we are so lucky to have Allestree Park and several other public parks, all so close


I hope the mention of Christmas didn’t scare you….

Please Remember ….

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

29th October
