Looking forward to the seasons......


The last few weeks in Yorkshire have been damp, foggy, and covered in dew drops..

I am looking forward to...

the changing seasons  


The leaves will be turning 


soon we will be finding Mushrooms and Toadstools 


and frosty photos will be appearing all over Blog land....


Ash tree


I've been busy recording all the trees at the park, getting them confirmed on iSpot. I have found new trees every day and a few surprises  (saving that for another post)



The nettles have been covered in Harlequin  larvae.


The seeds on the Field Maple are turning a lovely pink.


The mist has been covering the spider webs and leaving drops of rain on plants..




Speckled Wood Butterflies still about in good numbers even though the weather been bad.


Finding Shield bugs (Instar of a Green Shield bug )  



Ivy is flowering so great for Insects looking for food..

There are still a few wild flowers to be found flowering..

Ivy leaved Toadflax
Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare) 

Happy Hunting

  3. Beautiful images ........taking us into autumn.

    Has ash die back reached Yorkshire yet??? There are many areas in Kent that are severely affected by the disease.

    Field mushrooms are appearing in the garden.............lots of spiders webs. It is the most lovely of seasons, isn't it?

    1. Thanks Cheryl, The Ash trees at the park are looking really well at the moment, and I hope they stay that way.. Some of the trees are suffering a little, Oak, Lime, Maple and Horse Chestnut all seemed to be covered in Galls and damage from leaf mites. This can either damage the tree or just make it look a little sad, for example Black spot on the sycamore leaves.. I know I've noticed the trees more this year due to recording them at the park, but I have been shocked how bad some trees look.

  11. Really beautiful photos Amanda, Autumn hasn't hit us yet (still swimming in the sea on Saturday) but it's always been such a wonderful sight where we lived before that I'm wondering what to expect here, as we seem to be surrounded by so many evergreen trees. x

  12. Love that first picture - how did you get squares? My bokeh light balls are normally circular. I'm not looking forward to frost or real autumn but will try my best to capture it, of course! Great post. :-) xx
    P.S. Catching up after a bit of time off.

  13. Thanks Mandy, it just came out like that ! Dew drops on wet grass into the sun and out of focus , I have turned the photo on its side but that won't make a difference.
