All at Sea…

We will not be around for a while….whilst Wordless Wednesday is already in the system there will be a break from the Daily Post.

And don’t worry about Buster… Simon and Matthew are firmly in charge of everything at home (in particular the freezer) with a watchful eye from Buster making sure he gets his share of what’s cooking!  🙂

Shop windows always grab my attention…well they do when the shop keeper makes an effort to create a display of interest.

So this is my suggestion for this week Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge

Autumn…its just around the Corner!

Someone said yesterday, that Autumn was just around the corner. It is an inevitable fact that Autumn will arrive. However I do hope that round this corner there is a long straight road of late summer for us to enjoy first.

The rains of last week, whilst not that intense, have revitalised the trees which for the most part are once again showing a spring like green..

Ash Keys are now plumping up with new seeds ready to be dispersed in the wind when they fall in the autumn.  What is worrying is the trend of recent years for the Horse Chestnut Trees to display brown rust spots on there leaves…very noticeable this year..

Late August the days have cooled…. but still the early morning glow, with a lower sun, does light up the browns and the odd leaf that has started to turn indicating that whilst hopefully it is some way off, autumn is on the way….
