Yesterday was the last day of British Summer Time so last night we gained an extra hours sleep when the clocks returned to GMT. Today when I noticed this glorious sunset something felt strange - it was only 16.40 hrs.

Sadly this poor old tree on the hill has met it's end. Will it be some one's firewood? I just had to photograph the pattern of rings!

Changeable skies! It was beautiful when we started out on our walk - where did the blue sky go?

The berries on the rowan tree look beautiful this autumn and the birds are already having a feast!

My beautiful orchid is flowering again for the third time. It is now in it's second year - I've never been able to keep one this long before!!

We seem to have hundreds of these electricity pylons marching in pairs across the East Anglian countryside and now there is talk of even more being erected!! Although they are a blot on the landscape the joy of having an electric kettle for my early morning cup of tea and being able to switch on the computer at all times probably outweighs their ugliness.

This year the pyracantha bush is covered in berries so there should be plenty for the birds during the winter months. Is a harsh winter on it's way??

The view from one of our windows. I love watching this tree in all seasons but I think it is particularly lovely in the autumn sunshine.

The Ancient House, Ipswich. This lovely old building dates back to the 15th century and stands in the Buttermarket. It was formerly a bookshop but is now occupied by Lakeland, a kitchenware retailer - one of my favourite shops!!

Come and Ride on our Buses. Ipswich Transport Museum organise this day when you can take a trip down memory lane riding on the buses from yesteryear - and it's free!! It's great to see the buses from years gone by out on the roads again.

October 1st 2009

A walk under the horse chestnut trees on my way home from town. The leaves have already started falling - there were lots of conkers on the ground too! When the children were small we used to walk past these trees on our way home from school. Great fun seeing who could find the most conkers!!
