A Hint of Autumn...
When I woke this morning it was actually raining and I thought that it was going to be a lazy Sunday for me and the dogs. But, by the time I had got myself into gear and my first cup of tea the sun had broke through. Mind you, and it really pains me to say it but the first subtle signs of Autumn are starting to creep in. Last night it was gloaming at nine o'clock and I've noticed the birds are taking a bit longer to start their wake up call in the morning...sigh!
Took our usual walk on the Springside end of the country path and was surprised to see the rowans are already hanging with berries, not quite ripened but plenty of them, a sign of nature providing for the birds? Had my digital sketch book with me and got plenty of reference photos for inspiration at the easel. Also met this handsome big lad and yes he was as big as he looks in the photo, not tall but solid as a rock I wouldn't want to rub him up the wrong way.
Oh well think it might be time to put my feet up for tonight Countryfile, Fake or Fortune and then Poldark before bed. Thanks for looking :)
