November 🍂🍁🍂


Foggy mornings,
Damp, cold and grey.
Nature’s blanket,
Clouding the way.
Shorter days,
Frosty and wet,
Winter’s on the way
but not just yet!

The colours of November are taking us gradually into winter.
There have been rich, glorious colours this autumn but I am beginning to notice that these colours are slowly fading and a more despondent scene is lurking! It still has its beauty but is taking on a more sombre feel.

The little robin in our garden is never far away

The fallen apples are feeding the starlings, what a year it has been for apples!!!

The berries still give a burst of colour though!

The next photo was taken at the end of September and the following one is of the same spot today.

So, winter IS on its way – but not just yet!! I hope!!🍂🍁🍂

yes that is the nice thing about winter seeing the branches and form of the trees. and when it is a clear dry day the light can be stunning.

Yes, I was thinking the same Chris. Most of the leaves are down now. Stll beautiful, but a totally different scene.

Yes the shapes of the trees and the amount of sky to be seen, is a bonus. The skies at dusk have been beautiful, lots of pink and red. Sweeping leaves has been so much fun too and seeing the birds gobble up the red berries. Lots of nice things to come, enjoy it all - inside outside, dark or light, cold or warm, it's a winter delight!

Since we had the hedge lowered we now have a great view of the trees on the heath. At sunset their silhouettes against the sky look magical.
Every season has its beauty.

I do miss living in the countryside, although I love being by the sea it is not the same looking at houses instead of could be worse I am sure!

I miss living by the sea. I only had a 5min walk and I would be on the sand at low tide or paddling at high tide.
The skyline is really important at this time of year isn't it?

Whatever the seasons,our gardens and outlook,all take on a different view,,some better ,and some worse,but you are one of the lucky ones,Chris..I hadn't noticed before,just how far you can see ,beyond your garden...just lovely xx

Its all been said - lovely at any time of year. We are so lucky in Brtain to have the variety of the seasons without the extremes! We do OK here - 15 min drive to the sea and country views from the garden. (Not long vistas like yours though - we see mostly treetops in the valley) Can't be bad!
It helps you remember to count your blessings doesn't it?

I love the poem Chris and the before and after photo it shows there's no stopping nature , I do love all our seasons there's something special about each one ...

I forgot to mention the Pyracantha -its really done itself proud hasn't it. Also forgot to say I enjoyed the poem- sums up the season beautifully!

I love the changing seasons. Without one we wouldn't get the next. Winter does seem to drag though when you get to March lol
Beautiful autumn views in your garden :)
