Lots of autumnal colours in and around the woods.  This Redwood always has a spectacular trunk but the foliage is a cause of some concern.  Possible the exceptionally dry hot summer has taken its toll as the foliage is all dry and brittle….I hope it recovers as we would miss this giant

Yesterday, Sunday did start damp and dark.. but there were signs that sun would soon grace us with its presence.  It did and despite a breeze the temperature rose to 15c….now for November that is just not right. But the colours of autumn that we have waited for are now all about….

Cannot be long before we say goodbye to those colourful leaves of autumn

An Image taken today…at the 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month… 2018

I am rather pleased that my favourite Silver Birch has hung onto its leaves for so long this autumn….somehow seemed so right this special year.

A Soldiers Room

So many never came home to their homes…….tomorrow is Remembrance Sunday when at the 11th Hour, on the 11th Day of the 11th Month, 1918, hostilities ceased.

Sadly we stumble on without learning the lessons of History
