    I'm not far from you little-ann and I would say it's here already image All the 'autumn' fruit is ready and we have had the wood-burner on again today.......rubbish image

    The Lakes is always beautiful though, whatever the season. My favourite working day of the month is my Cumbria day image

    It is much earlier than last year but it always takes me by surprise I never get to the end of summer jobs before I need to start getting ready for winter

    I don't mind the change in the seasons really

    ..the sooner it's here...the sooner it'll be over and Spring will be around the corner...and we'll see the return of the internet trolls...refreshed and reworked... and we'll be arguing over the ID of some old bush someone's had in their garden for 50

    I bet Cumbria is lovely when the trees turn. My favourite times of the year are the times of change from one season to another. I just love the anticipation of what's to come.

    log burner on here too. Lovely and cosy x

    I just love the lakes but its been many years since I've been there sadly. Still, I've done quite a few of the peaks. Scafell,Helvellyn,Skiddaw, Old Man of Coniston,Red Pike above Buttermere, the 'High Street' in the eastern fells. Ah,memories.

    Hi little ann, missed you hope you are okay image

    I have chinese lanterns now turning orange, usually happens in late September.

    One Hellebore has flowers on image

    Fishy, never been trecking up mountains but loved the pub near the top of Rinos ? passimage had to be in 1st gear for last bit of the mountain / big hill. My fave place in lakes is Coniston.

    We have had one Hellebore flowering since end of July, yet the Cosmos grown from seed is just started flowering the seasons seemed to be mixed up.

  • The swallows hereabouts have done a u-turn!   image

    I've got the sound of big ploughing tractor and seed drill. 

    In the low sunshine I can see dragonflies lit up against a shade backdrop. 


    In the sticks near Peterborough

    Nut - that's the sound that always says to me that summer is passing.

    KEF - Wrynose Pass? image That's a good test for a car but leading off it is Hardknott Pass. S-bends and 1:3 gradient but worth it for the Roman fort at the top. Oh yes Coniston is beautiful image
