Golden crunch

The gloomy grey weather continues …

Crunch.jpg

So, I’m looking back to October’s golden crunch

When leaves floated on fog

Fog.jpg

And grass crunched underfoot

As we enjoyed the view.

November gold

November has been a time of

Mellow fog and bare trees.

Simmie.jpg

The golden coins of leaves

Lie on the ground.

Rubyboat.jpg

Stubborn mists

Give the scenery (and Ruby) a misty quality

And make the golden tones of dog and reeds pop.

Ruby.jpg

We finally had some icy weather

But that doesn’t stop Simmie from taking a swim.

Orange you glad it’s November

Our November has been mild and misty

With burnished tones.

Mist.jpg

Sometimes the sky burns orange

As the geese honk their farewells.

Orange.jpg

And a stray leaf

Falls gently on orange fur.

Splashes of colour

Every November, we forget how gloomy it can be.

So we need to find small moments of joy where we can —

Boat_dog.jpg

Be it a serene lake and a dog;

Boat_orange.jpg

Or the orange burst of a boat

And its perfect mirror image.

The English countryside

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.

River.jpg

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.)

Yellowhammers.jpg

And, of course, no trip to Sussex is complete

Without a picture of the sheep grazing on the Downs.

Upside down autumn

I drink in the autumn beauty

Of upside down leaves with dog;

Upside down.jpg

Of torches made of leaves

View1.jpg

Lighting the way slowly

But surely to winter;

View2.jpg

I sing the days of

Autumn’s glory.

I have a very busy week ahead so may not get round to commenting on your blogs.


Fabulous fog

I tried to grab some fog …

And I don’t think I mist!

Trees.jpg

I love the way fog

Transforms everything:

Golden.jpg

Trees, dog, and boat.

Boat.jpg

Ruby’s favourite pastime

Is to jump up on tall rocks

And wait for treats (fog or no fog).

Autumnal notes

I love the beginning of autumn —

With its spooky spider web trees;

Webs.jpg

Dogs enjoying the view

And a swim.

Simmie.jpg

And I love it when the golden fields

Are a backdrop to those birds

That look like musical notes.

Reflected emerald

The pendulum has swung, and now the days

Will be shorter than the evenings.

Misty.jpg

This means early morning mists

And emerald green reflections

Reflections.jpg

Slowly turning to rust.

Calm reflections, red houses

Red_houses.jpg

And beautiful views

Mean autumn is slowly on its way.

Postcards from August

Cone you feel it?

Summer is coming to a beautiful end.

Cone.jpg

Golden days

End in golden hays (and a dog purveying his kingdom).

Simmie.jpg

The bees make even

The humble onion flower bee-utiful.

Bee-autiful.jpg

Our walk ends with

A dewy heart.

Summer is leaf-ing – and so are my bad puns!
