Carrying on from my last post - I did make it outside for a little walk in the autumn sunshine - not far - part of our road is gravel and I struggled with that - didn't feel very safe underfoot. Never mind I got to where I was heading - a patch of toadstools/mushrooms that spring up every year;
I love the growing pattern of these - this patch appear first and then there are some inkcaps that appear on another part of the verge in a few weeks. We also get a fairy ring appear on the front garden at some point - hoping to be able to spot that and get a picture - need to get there before some destroys it when raking leaves.
Wednesday was gorgeous here - the sun shone and it was so warm for the beginning of November. The leaves on the cherry tree have got even more pretty;
I love the colours of autumn - a final burst of colour before the duller days of winter descend and of course all the trees loose their leaves. Now I'm no good on the names of plants but the berries on this one are pretty this year - am hoping they are something the bird population like;
Yesterday was a tad duller but at least it stayed dry. I had an appointment to see the physio in Aldeburgh, so we left early as there were a few things that needed collecting and of course the chance to have a a bag of chips on the seawall is never one to turn down! (Must make it clear - chips are a once a month treat - not every week though sometimes it must seem like that as I mention them loads!!).
The sea was quite rough and the seagulls were all huddled together on the beach to keep warm only moving if they thought someone was going to feed them - not a chance;
Oh my physio appointment - I've stuck lucky again :) Very nice and quite hunky. Yesterday was just seeing what movements/strength I've got and also trying to improve the circulation and getting the swelling to go down. This involved having my leg massaged - I think next time I might have to mention how stiff my shoulders are from using the crutches!!
Have a good weekend - hoping the forecast is wrong as MrVV & Little Son have a brass engagement I'd like to go along too. Otherwise there's a pile of crafting to finish, Strictly to watch, the last episode of Downton Abbey to enjoy and the finally the promise of a fireworks party too!
See you soon
