A Quick Walk Around ‘The Block’.

It was the Oak, flaming in yesterday’s evening sunshine, that sparked off a longer walk around the block to fetch milk and bananas! … today, not flaming, but smouldering.

On the Green, those trees that remain, still have colourful leaves, but across the road the Acacia tree has lost most of its yellow leaves and now the prolific, brown seed pods of the tree next to it catch the eye.

Opposite the Green, a hedge of Snowberries, Symphoricarpos Albus, provides a pretty corner as I turn into the road adjacent to mine.

Across that road, is another Oak tree … glorious brassy leaves against its near black trunk!

Down the road, there are more berries for the birds …..

… more hedging, this time interspersed with beautiful Beech …..

..and ‘that Oak’ carpeting the pavement and road with glorious colours.

When I pine for countryside, I just need to take a quick walk around the block … it helps.
