Today is the 1st of November and it is exactly a year since I arrived in the US and indeed since I started this blog. It has been fun! Thanks to Karen for the original inspiration and thanks to you all for your interest and enthusiasm in following us in our US adventure. I will try to keep on finding new and different things to write about in this second year - but I know that you won't be too surprised if I resort to photographing the garden birds on quiet days.,
Today we set off to walk in the woods this morning in a bid to improve our 'step' count for the day. The cooler days and cold nights mean that the leaves are now turning, and falling, quite quickly so the path through the woods is now carpeted in some places.
The trail was fairly quiet - just a few walkers, joggers and cyclists wrapped up against the cold.
Even without the benefit of sunshine the colours were beautiful.
The onset of Winter foretold in the stream..
We are forecast windy weather tomorrow so there will be even more leaves to deal with.
Already along our road there are many leaves down but it is a very colourful sight.
