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…

Please Remember ….

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

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….

Please Remember ….

It may well be the 8th October….. but just the odd hint of autumn and for the most part still rather like summer.

Maybe a picnic in the boat would be nice.

But as always…….

Please Remember ….

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

Half a Gate and Half a Door.

The Half Gate is, believe it or not, an expensive Sculptural Installation, and is a gate to nowhere.

The other is a Stable door that has seen rather a lot of practical ware over the years.

Just a couple of light hearted contributions to this weeks Cee’s B&W Challenge  – Half of Anything .

Here are two more…..  Half a Sun Hat won’t do you much good!

Half a Hat

A Glass of Wine…..  Well, Just Half a Glass for me please.
