Big Wood, Allestree
It is morning and the sun is high enough in the sky to cut through the woodland canopy…..but make no mistake there is now that richer warm touch to its glow. Like it or not we have entered that stage of summer that slowly over the next few weeks that mutates into autumn.
It is some time till the leaves will turn and fall, but for those trees that fruit their productive season is well underway. If you need proof then perhaps this Rowan (or Mountain Ash) will convince you….
Even though this year seems to have moved past us like an express train I am not complaining as late summer can be one of the nicest times of the year to be out and about. All we need to make it perfect is for the weather to play ball!
