strawberry fields ......



~   Beerenberg Farm  Hahndorf   ~
 
gathering in the last of the summer berries
 
Picking in open fields with sunshine alighting on my back
reminded me of the lyrics to the Beatle's song
"Strawberry Fields Forever"
This song was written by John Lennon who recalls
 happy memories of his time playing in the garden of a Salvation Army House
named "Strawberry Fields" near his childhood home.

autumn reflections on the lake .......



near kuitpo forest    ~
 
snippets from my walk around this privately owned lake
 birds twittering and autumn leaves reflected
a perfect day !!

at days end .....




 
no need for life-guards on this deserted beach
all was quiet as the sun silently slipped below the horizon

~   Main Street Stirling   ~
 
driving though the hill-town of Stirling
I couldn't help but stop and take a few quick snaps

before winter descends and
 cold grey rainy days set in

simply messing about in boats .....



~   Carrick Hill Gardens   ~

I agree with mole's friend Ratty the water-rat who says
"there is nothing-absolutely nothing -
half so much worth doing
as simply messing about in boats"

country lane edged in gold .........



   Kuitpo Vineyards
 
 
the last days of autumn brings with it
 magical golden colours
 
must remember to use my brakes at the bottom of the lane!!!
 

 
on the way down  -  on the way up

morning sun alighting on spent twigs ..........




 
 
I have been watching this little jewelled coronet
of intertwined twigs - wondering if it was per-chance the
makings of a blackbird nest, and in the observation have delighted
in the myriad of shapes & colours created by early morning sun-bursts
alighting on my autumnal glory-vines
 
 
 
 
is there anything prettier than
morning sun on spent twigs  ~

at the flour mill .....



 ~   Bridgewater Mill   ~
 
Once a thriving flour mill - now converted to an upmarket restaurant
but the wheels on this old mill keep turning
 albeit very slowly
 
Revolution not only speaks of mutiny, revolt and rebellion
but about "instances of revolving"
rotating, circling and twirling
and yes!  amid the circling I managed to capture this interesting
aged window in the Flour-Mill surrounds
