Today has been one of those almost perfect autumn days.
Fine and sunny for most of the day with just some high cloud building up later in the afternoon.
Driving home along our lane on my return from Hospice at lunchtime I was struck by the abundance of bright red berries on the hawthorn all along the roadside. They were particularly noticeable , the bright colour standing out against the bare branches, most of the leaves having piled up in our garden!
Later, as the sun began to sink towards the horizon behind Peel Castle out on its little island, the sky turned a beautiful golden yellow, reflecting off the dark blue patches of cloud above. Much like the photo I took for my profile picture a year or so ago.
Isn't nature wonderful?
