Rosebay

The day after I take this photograph I find my jacket covered with what appear to be flecks of cotton wool, which I cannot understand until I remember coming up close to this flocculent plant.  Until I took this photograph I never noticed those long protuberances, thick pink stems, stretching out round the fading flowerheads; nor that the fluff was full of seeds.

Leaf Fall

This year’s bright leaves fall over the curled and colour-leeched leaves of former years, on the path that I take up above the river. Up here the rowans and the wild cherries will soon have their brilliant autumn colouring. The geese are still massed on the river, Canada geees and greylag, intermingled with the ducks and swans.  I don’t know what the salmon fishermen make of them, as they are very close to the rowing boats near the weir.

Anne and Sam

Anne and Sam

A fine day, so I go out walking round the fields known as The Lees, which run beside River Tweed;  and I come across two friends, so walk some of the way with them. Sam is like Mr Punch’s dog, but Anne isn’t at all like Mr Punch.

Red Admiral

Red Admiral

Almost the last buddleia in full flower, almost the last butterfly of the year. The underwings of red admirals are such a pretty sight.
