One of Aaron’s tasks this morning was to start clearing the falling leaves. He used his handy blower to stir the frisky foliage.

Jackie and I left Elizabeth behind when we left before our friend had finished this morning to meet Frances, Fiona, Paul, James, Danni, and Andy for lunch at the Luzborough House pub in Romsey. Elizabeth had a cold and was careful not to pass it on, either to my two pregnant nieces or to our mother. The venue had been chosen so that sister-in-law Frances, her daughter, son-in-law, and grandson could visit Mum in hospital.

The meals were OK. My choice was steak, prawns, calamari, and salad followed by ice cream sundae. I drank Old Speckled Hen.

On our return home, Jackie and I, having opted not to overcrowd Mum, took a diversion into the forest.

At Bramshaw, we took a lane we have not previously discovered. This led us to Bramble Hill where, sharing the sky with cotton wool clouds, the sun gilded the bright bracken. I was delighted when an obliging young lady brought her steed into shot. As I told her, she had just made a picture.

A string of stately alpacas stepping across the fields of ‘Faraway Alpacas’ in Godshill, passed a blissfully happy hembra suckling her contented cria.

Further along the road a lone chestnut pony took its turn at making its own couple of Autumnal pictures.

No further sustenance was needed this evening.

  1. A gravel pathway ALWAYS requires a blower – they are invaluable. And Alpacas are now very common in Australian farms. One or two in a paddock with sheep acting as guards against foxes – a South American import to beat a European feral pest.

  2. How wonderful to see the alpacas!
    The cotton wool clouds in the blue sky are stunning!
    And the lone rider in that photo is perfection!
    Some beautiful autumn scenes and you captured them in your photos, Derrick!

  4. I love how you get the wildlife to pose perfectly for you! πŸ˜€ … I think Autumn puts on such a beautiful show because She knows how dreary Winter can get, on occasions. πŸ™‚
