Here’s a few photos taken over the past week or two.
A forbidding portal to another, darker place? Nah, just the Priory Drive descending through the wood …
… and down into a valley of mist and frost.
Overlooking neighbouring fields.
The tulip tree (right) and beech hedging on the autumnal turn.
The tulip tree again – to the left of the Priory roofs.
At this time of year, mowing is as much about picking up leaves as cutting grass.
Mahonia. Don’t you just love it? Nope – me neither but I do concede it puts on a zingy show.
Miscanthus transmorrisonensis in flower.
Yellowing oaks and oddly shaped larch up on the drive.
Nigella seeds and ivy on sedum.
White shapes in a frosted field.
One of many recent, satisfying bonfires.
Oops. Almost forgot autumnal leaves …. Cornus leaves hanging on, grimly, for another day or two.
Liquidamber leaves – rosy and frosted.
And finally, backlit by todays sun, the very last birch leaves at the Old Forge.
