We received notice that workmen would be shutting off the water supply to our street today, so I thought I would go for a drive instead.
The weather was a bit dull, but it is always nice to get out into farmland away from the main roads.
I found a lovely old oak tree to park beneath and watch the world go by for an hour or so, but it was a little hair-raising when a couple of acorns landed on the top of the car.
What a noise!
There were still quite a few acorns up in the tree and they were dropping at regular intervals, along with a few leaves.
The whole area beneath this tree was covered with acorns – it would be squirrel heaven, if we had them here! They were like a brown carpet and rolled and crunched under the feet when walked upon.
Autumn would have to be my favourite season of the year. I love the mellowness of the weather, harvest is in full swing, and it is always interesting to observe the changes in nature as it prepares for cooler weather.
Stay safe and have a happy day 😊
