No apologies for this, but I’ve spent another peaceful Sunday ambling around with my camera pointing at the autumn.As the clocks have gone back last night we’ve entered the time of the year where the light hours get more precious. Where those of us who are prone to depression anyway get more depressed if we don’t get out in the light enough.
Though it’s a fairly dark slate grey day anyway here on Penny Lane.
But coloured in brilliantly by the variety of the autumn leaves.
Here in Greenbank Park.
Such a quiet day, hardly any people around.
Though I know there’ll be a Halloween gathering later, here at Greenbank Lane allotments, which Sarah will go to.
Into Sefton Park.
Checking on my favourite tree in here.
Apparentky a Metasequoia glyptostroboides – though I’d need to check with Sarah to be certain.
(Later I get this message on Twitter from @LiverpoolParks ‘Looks like a metasequoia – ‘fossil’ tree, interesting introduction(s) from China’ Thank you!)
Still very quiet as I sit on the park wall reading.
Moss on the lake.
Time for another sit and another read. The day darkening now at 2 o’clock.
Then walking home along the woody beginning of Queen’s Drive.
Looking nothing like the ring road that goes round the city from here to Bootle.
A beautiful grey day, coloured in by the autumn.
Then home to pick out the photos, write this up and look forward to tomorrow, another day of Coming Home.
Painted for us by Ellie Melhuish, my grandaughter.
Thank you Ellie.
