Each time we have one more golden day we savour each moment as it could be the last one of the year.
The rising moon hints at glowing day that has passed
The rosehips are now glowing following on from the hawthorn, where the Blackbirds have not been slow in playing their part in the seed dispersal
Other fruits, late
Nasturtiums could almost replace gorse in the kissing season proverb
The Robins have started to sing again, staking out their territories ready for the Spring. The Compost Heap Robin might have the best patch but we appreciate the Back Door Robin who sings so loud he sounds as if he is inside.
We are starting the wood stack for using in over a year’s time – that seems a long way off at the moment
Around the hen house
the Cockerels vie for the reddest wattles
This plant is in the lake and its red beacon is visible from afar
Possibly the only picture here where red might be for danger
The Poppies in the orchard meadow continue to shine
and the Dogwood promises to keep glowing through the dark days ahead
