Autumn has been very late this year, on Halloween, the temperature was a record high of 23.6 C (74.3F) ! Warmer than many of our summer days in years gone by! As a result strawberries are still ripening, crocuses are flowering and the leaves are staying uncharacteristically green for this time of year! Nevertheless I was able to capture the autumnal feel for Ailsa’s Travel Theme on our walk around Box Hill last weekend
The low light and earlier sunsets bring out the golden colours just beginning to appear in the leaves. My header picture was also taken later on the same walk.
