Autumnal butterflies

There is a definite nip in the air first thing in the morning and last thing at night but midday is as hot as any summer day we've had and the butterflies and bees are making the most of late flowering blooms to prepare for hibernation. My garden might be looking a bit past its best but theres still lots of lovely colour to make the most of and gladden the heart.

Autumn webs

Its dark now when I get up at 5.30 - really sad winters on its way again, but once the suns up we can see the valley full of mist and the dew glistening like tiny jewels on the spiders webs that festoon the thistle heads  and fences.
