We Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

This week we have had the odd lovely autumnal day, interspaced with heavy rain and high winds.

On Monday we were treated to an eerie, yellow-grey sky, with a luminous orange sun. This was caused by the winds from hurricane Ophelia whipping up Saharan dust!

I also added one of my favourite autumn leaves from the garden.
