A grey squirrel perched in the acer at Bowles’ Corner, RHS Wisley Gardens, for WexMondays this week. The squirrels are such fun to watch at the moment as they feed on the seeds of trees, like this acer, and cache nuts from the oaks and beech for later in the winter. We stared at one another for quite a while, both keeping as still as possible. The colours in this acer are just wonderful! Bold greens through to rich reds with bright red helicopter seeds. I have captured a lot of wonderful autumnal scenes this last week but this dear little face kept drawing me back!
Source of life itself Golden roots and boughs mirrored In endless beauty
Celebrating the beauty of Autumnal trees, this is my entry for this week’s Wex Mondays challenge. I took the photo last Monday in the eerie and wonderful light of the red sun and orange skies, created by the Saharan sand that was blown in by hurricane Ophelia.
After a horrible week of car breakdowns and throat infections I was treated to a warming end to the weekend. Simon took me down to RHS Wisley Gardens yesterday, for the last few hours of daylight, so I could get some much needed fresh air and a revitalising dose of nature! After watching the birds from the hide for a while we just had time for a cuppa and cake, sitting outside the main restaurant, watching the sun dip behind the trees on Seven Acres, edging the scene with a golden hue that lifted both the colours and my spirits. This is my entry for the weekly Fotospeed challenge as it’s one I would absolutely love to have printed up and hanging on the wall!
