Balmy autumn days

There is no reason for this post other than to share these images of how autumn is gently encroaching, here in the Dales. The other morning I went out to feed the chickens and turned back to see my footsteps marked out in the first dew of the season.

The bright yellow and orange patches of nasturtium blooms and the scarlet Montbretia splayed beneath the crab apple tree look preternaturally vivid in this faded, shining landscape.

And on my walks out along the roads and tracks, the dale is often curtained with that same heavy mist, but to compensate for the long view we are deprived of we find instead jewels, pearls, hanging in the hedgerow and reflecting the pale autumn daylight.

  1. When you live in the country; having been a city child, every natural event is an inhalation. I’m so glad that being up there has become your muse.
