quietly autumnal

In contrast to the bright colours of the Acers at Westonbirt in my last post, the late autumn colours here are quieter and more muted.

We have had wind and rain but in-between there have been lovely calm days

to appreciate the slowness of November.

The last yellow leaves

the golden browns of the dying bracken

and the contrast between fruits and foliage in the hedges.

Some trees like this English maple are full of leaf

whilst leaves have dropped from others producing a temporary colourful carpet.

And most magical, in a clearing, this deer quietly watching me through the bare twigs of the bushes. All very quiet and peaceful.

- wishing for more quiet and more peace in our world.
