The gloomy grey weather continues …
So, I’m looking back to October’s golden crunch
When leaves floated on fog
And grass crunched underfoot
As we enjoyed the view.

November has been a time of
Mellow fog and bare trees.
The golden coins of leaves
Lie on the ground.
Give the scenery (and Ruby) a misty quality
And make the golden tones of dog and reeds pop.
We finally had some icy weather
But that doesn’t stop Simmie from taking a swim.

Our November has been mild and misty
With burnished tones.
Sometimes the sky burns orange
As the geese honk their farewells.
And a stray leaf
Falls gently on orange fur.

Every November, we forget how gloomy it can be.
So we need to find small moments of joy where we can —
Be it a serene lake and a dog;
Or the orange burst of a boat
And its perfect mirror image.

When I was in England recently, I went on a long walk
Along the banks of the river that snaked like a silver ribbon
Through the Sussex countryside.
It was a hazy, warm day.
Bramber castle and adjoining Norman church
Lay nestled in an autumn tinged valley.
One of the bushes next to the river
Was humming with bright yellowhammers.
(If you look in the centre of the shot, you’ll see their bright yellow wings.)
And, of course, no trip to Sussex is complete
Without a picture of the sheep grazing on the Downs.

I drink in the autumn beauty
Of upside down leaves with dog;
Of torches made of leaves
Lighting the way slowly
But surely to winter;
I sing the days of

I have a very busy week ahead so may not get round to commenting on your blogs.
I tried to grab some fog …
And I don’t think I mist!
I love the way fog
Trees, dog, and boat.
Ruby’s favourite pastime
Is to jump up on tall rocks
And wait for treats (fog or no fog).

I love the beginning of autumn —
With its spooky spider web trees;
Dogs enjoying the view
And a swim.
And I love it when the golden fields
Are a backdrop to those birds
That look like musical notes.

The pendulum has swung, and now the days
Will be shorter than the evenings.
This means early morning mists
And emerald green reflections
Slowly turning to rust.
Calm reflections, red houses
And beautiful views
Mean autumn is slowly on its way.

Cone you feel it?
Summer is coming to a beautiful end.
End in golden hays (and a dog purveying his kingdom).
The bees make even
The humble onion flower bee-utiful.
Our walk ends with
A dewy heart.
Summer is leaf-ing – and so are my bad puns!
