October, bare fields and low slanting sun,

shiny conkers fresh out of their cases,

 and berries in the hedges.

A few years back I shared my method of making rose-hip syrup. It seems to be a good year for hips this year.

Also blackberries,


and a bumper crop of sloes - good for sloe gin.

The ivy flowers buzzing with insects, an important source of nectar at the end of the season,

and here the leaves are starting to turn.

A perfect, quiet October day.
