After all the sunny mornings of the past few months the fog that draped everywhere with its cool blanket of grey, dulling all the woodland colours, still came as a bit of a surprise. Not that we can complain the late summer and early autumn have been a real treat with what I call bonus days!
The fog turned to mist and though it remained with us all day, the lingering warmth and that fact that the sun did exercise its best efforts to break through made it all quite a pleasant change.
The mist brushed the tops of the trees by the lake for most of the day
But in the end the sun did win through and add a brighter touch to the end of the day
You might suggest that it is time that I admitted that Autumn was really with us. Certainly todays fog has been a forceful reminder of seasonal change yet for much of the woodland the glades are still verdant green….
