Obviously the evening light isn’t today Thursday! Yesterday afternoon while I was ironing I noticed that the light was once again wonderful and wanted to capture the November light as I had done the light in October. While I was outside with my camera, leaving the ironing to wait for a few minutes, I decided I would show the slope in this lovely clear light.
I always write a little about the weather in these Thursday posts; all I can say is that it has been very changeable AGAIN! Last Friday was glorious, warm and sunny, the weekend showery with a few hours of pleasant sun; Monday it rained all day and was grey, Tuesday was cold and a mix of cloud and sun, Wednesday cold and sunny and this morning it is very cold, with a pale blue sky with pink on the horizon. The light is bright so if I had taken the photographs this morning they would have been similar to last week.
Last week I became aware of how much the trees had grown, making their presence felt; this week it is a shrub I had almost forgotten about that caught my attention – a cotoneaster that I planted perhaps four years ago at the top of the slope to act as part of the division between the slope and what I call the ‘upper slope path’. The lovely red berries that I have been hoping to see have never been much in evidence; they may have been there and just not visible but look! Lovely long arching branches covered with berries (and yes Cathy, some will find their way into a vase).
A quick reminder that Saturday 22nd is Garden Bloggers Foliage Day, I do hope you’ll join with me to celebrate some glorious autumn colour, or if you’re in the southern hemisphere some lovely green foliage that will remind us that when winter is past it will be spring again. Just write and post is the usual way including a link to my post and leaving a comment with your link. I will enjoy seeing what you have this month.
What colour is the sky where you are today?
