Beechwood

abeechwood1Since walking up to Lennel Churchyard a week ago on a balmy November afternoon we have had heavy rain, and those swirling winds that come in gusts and howl down the street at night.  Some of the sheltered beeches, and the sycamores too, still have their foliage, but elsewhere the colours have been devastated.  Where I week ago I looked down at the River Leet through patterns of long yellow willow leaves, now not a leaf remains. I shall have to start thinking about painting my Christmas card.

Forget-Me-Nots

forget-me-notsForget-me-nots in the little plantation on the edge of River Leet.  I waded through the flowers, trying not to squash too many, making for the river, which is brown and narrow and unseen at this point from this bank, though if I was on the other side of the river I would see myself clearly standing on the bank; that is if I had a doppelganger.  Nobody else had walked through the flowers. The deer that were in this little plantation seem to have gone.
