The Last Sunny Days Of Summer

I’ve been making the most of the last warm sunny days with walks on the fells, lakes and woodlands, and my special, spiritual places.




P1350035Although there are still some lush greens about in shady glades and damp places there are small tell tale signs that autumn is just around the corner. The fells are taking on the purple mantle of heather, but soon that will be replaced with bronze tones of the bracken.

The swallows are gathering, indeed the parent birds have already left for sunny Africa.

I wasn’t alone in enjoying the late summer sunshine.
