1st November ... and the rain has arrived!

Well, it had to come, the rain is finally here.  So far only a light shower, but I get the feeling that we are in for rather more.  On the canopy of the wood - still quite a few leaves in situ - it patters with a gentle, rhythmic sound ... peaceful and yet a little melancholy, it sounds like the end of the last remnants of summer!

"What's that?"
 The sound made one little fellow look up as though he thought manna was falling from heaven... and maybe it was... the nuts were beginning to fall with the rain!

"Hazel nuts!!"
