The day after the clocks went back

No apologies for this, but I’ve spent another peaceful Sunday ambling around with my camera pointing at the autumn.dsc06989As 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.

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.

Metasequoia glyptostroboides - I checked.

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.

Time for another sit and another read. The day darkening now at 3 o'clock.

Looking nothing like the ring road that goes round the city from here to Bootle.

Then home to pick out the photos, write this up and look forward to tomorrow, another day of Coming Home.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful blogs, Ronnie. They bring Liverpool alive for this exiled Liverpudlian! The photos are glorious.
