18th October. The wind in the ... treetops!
Beautiful sunny, breezy day... with the autumn leaves swirling around my feet as I walk, and other tiny airborne flotsam and jetsam too! Birds must be loosing some of their summer plumage, because there are little feathers blowing in the wind, caught in brambles and cobwebs! They create tiny "dream catchers", reminding me of the ethnic pieces created by the native American peoples... fascinating, I wonder if that is how the idea first came about?
There are still a surprising number of wildflowers down in the leaf mould and among the twigs of the woodland floor. Periwinkles are like twinkling blue eyes winking up at you!
