Turned much colder and the sun has gone on holiday



A lot duller and a bit more seasonal today…..and tomorrow is a new month, yep! November already

First Frost….or so I am told


I am told we had our ‘first’ frost of the season….well ‘I am told’ is the operative phrase, by the time my eyes had opened to welcome the new day, the frost had gone.

Mind you it did leave a legacy of a wonderful calm sunny morning down by the Lake

But beware…

things are afoot in the woods.

Yes, its Halloween so best not to go down to the woods tonight as you don’t know who might be hanging around


At least someone has place a few offerings to placate the ‘spirits’


Go carefully tonight
