The weather continues to be very kind to us here. No rain for a few days now, and chilly nights are followed by glorious sunny days. Even though it is now dark by 7.30.pm, the benefit of the pleasant afternoons more than compensates for the onset of autumn.
Walking across to Wensum Way this afternoon with Ollie, I was pleasantly surprised by this display of sunflowers. They have been planted by the local farm, to provide ground cover for pheasant breeding, and with some accompanying deep blue wildflowers, offer a colourful break from all the greenery. This photo only shows about 10% of the area covered by the sunflowers.
I walked carefully into the centre of the area above, to get a single flower in close-up. If you enlarge this file, you will see that the detail has been nicely preserved.
On the way back from Gingerbread Corner, I was struck by the blue sky and fluffy clouds of this pastoral scene, across local fields. I still find it hard to imagine that this is just over the road from where we live.
The good news, is that this weather is expected to continue well into next week. It will hopefully provide many more photo opportunities, and allow Ollie and I to get out to some new places.
