Celebrating the last of autumn

November 28, 2013

The past fortnight has seen an intensity of frosty nights and sunny days, showing to brilliant advantage what glorious colours there are in a November landscape. When the weather turns to damper, darker days, as it did yesterday and in previous Novembers, it is a tonic to remember just how beautiful this month can be.

P.S. To all of you visiting from the States, may I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving! I’m off to make pumpkin pie now.

Other posts you might enjoy: from last November, Aureate , and from this time three years ago, the beginning of our extraordinarily cold ‘snow event’ in the Advent of Winter.

    Gorgeous pictures. How I wish I had some real hills to look at. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hills and mist make such a dramatic fall scene. We had frost last night – and snow about an hour from here. Looks like winter is arriving

    What stunning colours, especially the reds and russets in among the tapestry of gold and bronze. Let’s enjoy it while we can!

    Such wonderfully vibrant colours, including that lovely blue sky. A real shot in the arm down here where the predominant sky colour in November was grey.

      I hope you will get some bright skies to enjoy in December, especially with your new-found brightness of vision. 🙂

    I didn’t know the last few weeks had been bright and sunny – going to the office and coming out again in the dark I don’t see what the weather has been on weekdays! Thanks for a retrospective glimpse.

      How I feel for you! I well remember that life. Commuting in the dark both ways at this time of year is bad for one’s soul, so dispiriting. Nature awaits your pleasure with infinite patience, however.
