Another Bonus day down by the Lake
2nd November arrived and with it the first frost of the year. I am told that it was quite a thick frost but by the time my eyelids had opened it had vanished. It has though had an effect on the trees. There is much more colour but sadly many leaves have just dropped…..notably my two favourite Ash Trees have lost just about all their leaves overnight…soon they will just be skeletons..
Lakeside positively glowed this morning, the dark waters reflecting not just the dark blue of the early morning sky but the multicolours of the trees…
Not sure that the sycamore are going to turn yellow and gold as would be their normal plan but instead just drop everything to be trampled underfoot. The Horse Chestnut whilst slow to turn is still keeping to traditional display of brown and golds
But as the morning moved along wispy white clouds started to drift in and as its way remained with us till dusk…..but not a big problem as that gorgeous sunshine still kept breaking through
Just a note on temperatures. Monday we basked in 17c, some paces enjoyed 22c midday to day it reached the days maximum of 7c. The promise is for colder weather for the rest of the week.
