My Calendar of Firsts: Week 42

IMG_4217

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.
