Our friend, Paul Soren posted a picture yesterday that I said I thought would make a good screensaver.
This morning Jackie took me on a forest drive.
We began with the woodland alongside Bisterne Close where
the soft forest floor alongside contained
dry acorn cups,
fallen branches and crisp autumn leaves,
clustered beneath long decaying trunks and branches gradually returning to the soil.
The sculptural quality of an abandoned artefact was somewhat incongruous outside one of the houses.
One of the many pools that have spent much of the summer in a parched condition now reflects neighbouring gates.
Ponies perused our passing along Holmsley Passage.
Our friend mentioned above sent me an e-mail asking me to feel free to use his picture as my screensaver and sending me a jpeg image of a black swan and cygnets somewhere outside Melbourne seen through his rain-splashed windscreen.
I now see a picture from the other side of the world every time I switch on my computer.
For dinner this evening we repeated yesterday’s fare and beverages.
