This year the first frost of the winter season was on October 21st. It was quite mild but decorated the garden beautifully. Overhead geese were flying north.

This September the hydrangeas have been spectacular.
I try to visit Edinburgh at least once during the festival. The streets are full of characters and fun.
The unspoilt rolling countryside of the Cotswolds was a super location for a summer cottage holiday.
In June the setting sun is in the north west illuminating the land in a way we don’t normally see. This is the River Tay looking northwest from Kinnoull Hill, Perth being lit by crepuscular rays from the setting sun.
This year there were many heavy rain showers in May making the land very green indeed. No saturation added to these pictures!
It is always cheering to see the leaves of this huge willow tree near my house turn green in early April. A sign of the spring to follow.
In March I visited an exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci drawings in Glasgow’s lovely Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. There was low lighting to protect these wonderful old works and they proved impossible to photo without my own image appearing – so I went with the flow composed a selfie composite of myself in Da Vinci’s ‘A deluge’ which was drawn in 1517 or 1518.
In February I had the good fortune to be in Alberta, Canada when a polar vortex brought a cold snap. The snow ploughs were impressive, huge and passed like steam trains with splendid puffs of snow.
At the end of January I journeyed to Canada and had to travel via London. I was dreading this but the flight over the centre of London with the buildings sidelit by early morning light proved to be a treat.
