autumn glory

I’m afraid I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog front lately. We’ve had a succession of grey, drizzly days, which weren’t great for getting out and about and taking photos. We have managed to get some autumn jobs done in the garden though, things like taking down the bean canes, clearing some of the raised beds, and weeding and mulching the fruit bushes. I’ve also spent some time in the workshop, having had a sudden run on mistletoe earrings. Anyone would think Christmas was getting closer!

Yesterday and today have been sunny with clear skies though, so we’ve been out making the most of it. The autumn colour is just glorious this year, the best we’ve seen since we moved here. I think that the lack of windy weather has allowed the leaves to remain on the trees for longer, and they’ve developed the most beautiful golden coppery tones. The light was particularly good this afternoon, when I took these pictures.

We had our first snow on 20th November last year, so I think it’s fair to say that, so far, autumn has been fairly gentle with us.
