Never mind November 5th when we ignite a range of chemicals to create a spectrum of colour, Nature has it cracked and she calls it Autumn!
Early morning gloom slowly clears as the sun’s rays start to pierce the misty shield and the range of greens through reds and ambers are exposed to paint an award-winning canvas.
Footsteps can be heard crunching their way through the discarded leaves and eyes are shielded against the ever lowering sun. The last vestiges of blackberries still remain on the hedgerows and sloes are now available for picking and transforming in to a Yuletide warming beverage.
Can there be anything more enjoyable than walking a dog through this cascade of colour and climbing to the top of the local hill, looking down on one of the most beautiful villages in the country nestling in the valley, its church spire rising imperiously over the tree and roof-tops with the River Exe gurgling gently alongside?
Shadows length and darkness falls more quickly now but there is the solace of a log-fire and a roast dinner (with wine..) in prospect….the end to a Perfect Day.
