The first signs of autumn are on the canal bank,
We have picked our first blackberries,
the haws are ripening
and the berries are there to fatten up the birds for the winter.
The thistles that only a few days ago stood proud with their purple flowers are now brown and blowing their seeds down the wind.
Basil and Jenny of Wandering Star, hadn't seen them for nigh on two years and today there they were wandering up the towpath at Burton, it's a small world on the cut. Please note this bit has nothing to do with autumn (years).
I now have a new camera, a Canon Power Shot SX210IS, whooee, all I've got to do now is learn how to use it, my camera is digital but my brain is still Box Brownie.
