Autumn at my heels

Lovely weather lately. Chilly evenings, great sunsets. Work calls, but some great commutes; it’s a bumper season for fruits of all kinds; the trees are laden with conkers, sweet chestnuts and hawthorn berries. Hedgerows glisten with ripe fruit of all varieties, and in villages, roadside trestles seem laden with surplus marrows and plums. Soon, it’ll be winter, and I’ll return to the Chase for dusk rides and frosty walks, but for now the lanes of Staffordshire enthral with their seasonal transformation.

You know the drill; click on any photo to see it in Panoramio.

    Hi there

    Where did you find the sweet chestnut trees?
    As we are keen to see some large ones!

    Thanks

    Wayne and family

    • That one was at the bottom of Stonnall Village, but doesn’t grow large fruit. Shenstone Churchyard worth a try, I think.

      Best wishes

      Bob
