Brilliant kaleidoscopes of colour give us the excuse to celebrate the most glorious season of the year.   Autumn is here and the trees are something to treasure while this virus is making life so difficult for so many. Our gardens and countryside are the good news, the Japanese maples lifting our spirits above this scary gloom.

We know well enough that making contact with nature in the great outdoors is good for our health and well being, so Sue and I have wandered in our garden with a camera to admire the show that our trees have kindly provided.

We hope you enjoy sharing this brief ramble round our patch, along with a few escapes to the outside world.

This was meant to be a River Avon barbel but what a beautiful fat carp in it's late season colours.

According to the Met Office the leaves are especially vibrant this year due to our warm wet winter followed by that lovely warm and sunny spring we enjoyed.

This glorious show is triggered by shorter days, longer nights and lower temperatures. In the Spring  the mysterious alchemy of photosynthesis allows a 
pigment known as chlorophyll to capture solar rays and manufacture the plants food, simple sugars which are produced from water and carbon dioxide. Stored in their leaves, this is the fuel for growth and plants are perceived as green because chlorophyll absorbs mainly the blue and red wavelengths and reflects the green.

Put simply, the reduced light of autumn and reduced green of chlorophyll allows the other colours to shine through, those vibrant reds, oranges and yellows that we admire so much.

With winter approaching there is less light and fuel available, so plants need to conserve energy and water and this is the trigger to drop their leaves and allow us to enjoy their beautiful bare branches.

Winter is wonderful and down here in the south of England it is very short. Even while we’re admiring the autumn colours, the snow drops and daffs are thrusting up out of the grass and the buds of our camellias and magnolias are fattening fast.
So there's lots of beauty to look forward to and with our freedoms restricted for a few weeks, we can all be grateful for that. Go enjoy that lovely fresh air.

    1. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him. That was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made a promise that anybody I know that has a relationship problem, I would be of help to such a person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem.

  2. My husband and I separated recently. We’ve been married for six years now and it’s been an abusive relationship in all types of way. I want to figure out myself and fix my own issues so I can be a great mom and wife but I feel like is a waste of time to try to fix my marriage because it’s broken down and I’m emotionally drained and I just want to focus on my kids. And I feel it’s unfair for me to try to fix something that I’m the only one that’s putting effort into. I’m so confused. That had been my decisions until i came across an article in a blog on how Dr.Ogudugu ( helped many people to restore broken marriages/relationships. I quickly contacted him, and he told me what i should do, which i did immediately. Within 48hours my husband came back and the greatest part of it is that my husband has changed completely, he no longer abuses or insults me. Today, he has become a loving and caring husband.
