Autumn colour #1

I’ve been very busy lately, making. It’s taken a while, but now I’m happy with them I’ll share some pics with you next week! Here’s a little clue – it involves woodworking and sewing.

oo, and Happy Halloween!

I’ve got a day in the kitchen making toffee apples and cakes that ooze blood/strawberry jam, followed by cooking on the fire pit in the dark! and fireworks –  I think dressing up was mentioned as being obligatory too.

A last glimpseOver the last few weeks we’ve spotted a few beautiful insects, making the most of them still being around I went a bit snap happy and filled my camera before they all went into hibernation, which is probably today – the weather is awful. So… a last glimpse spread over a couple of posts.A last glimpseA last glimpse

Early morning

Early morningTwo dogs, sat, still – it’s a miracle! didn’t last long but they are quite willing (if somewhat bemused) models…. sometimes.

I’m really enjoying the colours of autumn, especially first thing in the morning so, here’s a few photos from a few days ago, before they mowed the field –  I spent a few weeks thinking I should take some photos of the grasses, finally got round to it only to find them gone the next morning.Early morningEarly morningEarly morningEarly morningEarly morningEarly morning

The only beetle I could find at Castell Coch was hiding in a lovely carving and totally impossible to photograph so…. Foxbirdhare it is.
