...but autumn is finally happening. All of a sudden, leaves are all over the ground and the colour is now starting to change.
The projected frosts next week should finish this job.
It certainly looked rather pretty when I was out running today, past the London Road pond where there are now two shoveller drakes circling around, beaks down in the water, then up the Clay Lane hill where even on the dull dull day we had today, I still loved the views out over Balderton and past Claypole.
A kestrel was on the hunt at this point, taking a long time to find the ideal spot for a hover, about halfway up.
The berry laden trees in the Reserve nursery have now turned a beautiful rose gold, berries ready for any passing bullfinch to eat, or runner to photograph.
