Not yet Autumn……..

_DOI9669qqq

We are now well past the mid point of October…..  but as yet Autumn has yet to bite.

Fly Agaric are starting the autumnal process, always a colourful corner of the woods.

Moving further into the woods,  there is very little to indicate that the seasonal change has started….green is still the dominate colour.

Dawn this morning didn’t fill us with confidence and the forecast was equally as vague. So the day did swing from blue sky and sunshine to threatening grey… warm sunshine to rain in the near blink of an eye.

Autumn has to arrive sometime, and soon I expect.  I just hope that it want be a fleeting visit.

Whatever the season, whatever the weather, enjoy the weekend ahead… and as always…

Flippant Friday….. In the Hands of a Giant

Cumbria-1_198-You-Need-hands

Buster is none too sure about these giant hands…..

What is that saying    “A Bird in the Hand  ~ is worth Two in the Bush”   – does that also apply to Jack Russel’s ?

The hands, located on the shore of Derwent Water were sculpted from two large Oak Tree trunks.

This Friday and over the weekend….

Thoughtful Thursday….. A Wardrobe Change

21st October…….  weather very changeable.  Time I think to get the big coats out, rediscover the wooly hats, scarves and gloves …. best to make the most of any sunshine and breaks in the weather we might be lucky to receive.

And whilst doing all that…..

Please Remember ….

Wordless Wednesday….. A Favourite Place

DOI_5494_00096bbbtt

Location:- Cromarty, on the Cromarty Firth, The Black Isle, Ross & Cromarty, Scotland

Cromarty and Cromarty Firth are perhaps associated with sever weather and Gales as announced on the daily Shipping Forecast Broadcasts.  But from my experience also a  rather amenable Scottish Location.

A Bit Wet in the Woods….

Wet-Oakl-eaves

Dark and wet in the Oak woods this morning….. and a brisk wind bring leaves from the trees.

I do hope we are not going to move straight to winter, missing out autumn on the way.  At the moment the forward forecast is looking pretty grim.

The weather may be grim but we must still remember to…..

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