The Last Day of Summer?

 Yesterday was a day of glorious sunshine though on our walk up to the Wood, I found plenty of signs of Autumn on the way -

 Hawthorn berries ripening

 conkers on the chestnuts



                       blackberries




 elderberries
 the bracken high above my head


 rosebay willow herb in seed
 and the first signs of leaves turning colour
but still some cranesbill in flower.

Today has been damp, dark and generally dismal.
I'm hoping we haven't seen the last of the summer's warmth.

  1. A lovely time of year, but like early Spring, it is over too soon. I wish winter wasn't so long and dull!
