Tuesday View (28th October)

I was actually quite surprised when I compared today’s view with last week’s – not as much change as I thought after all the wind and rain we had. We can see up into the woods now though (behind the acer).

The acer still has so many leaves so I thought I’d take a few pictures of the last of the autumn colour before it all fades…

Focussing on the positive: these bright and warm colours are a tonic on cloudy days

And the miniature cherry has managed to retain most of its leaves this autumn too, showing some nice colour

We only had a few very brief rays of sunshine today, but to the north – as is so often the case – the sky was pale blue
