In the olden days they said:
“October extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain and November arrived, cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at exposed hands and faces.”
But nowadays it appears November is mild, calm and continuing Golden – should we pleased or worried?
When this is blended with the angles of the near-solstice sun new illuminations appear
Up above the clouds feather and drift
mirroring the still standing meadow
where Jessie searches for voles
as her hunting ground is slowly diminished
Her tail flag bobs as she explores
Lottie finds a new spot to catch a bit of warmth
Down in Bodger’s Corner the workshop is taking shape
Meanwhile we continue to look for re-purposes
So the Half-Moon is here
and we remember that last time Winter did not properly come until March:

I like the illuminated diagonal photo… I think I must see things around our place like you do but don’t have the time nor your talent to capture them. Like those clouds, nature is so beautiful.

Thanks, I’d been looking to capture a good lichen picture for a while. The low lighting is so beautiful at this time of year.
