Blooming November ~ Today Over The Garden Fence Who would have thought – November and a clear blue sky – a perfect backdrop for Evereste crab apples and a few sprays of Verbena bonariensis. Share this:PrintTumblrPinterestMoreFacebookTwitterLinkedInLike this:Like Loading... Related

Thank you, Kendall.
Marvellous blue sky – we had the same here (but no crab apples)
Sorry about the lack of crab apples 😉 So good to have the blue sky wasn’t it. We went wood foraging along the old railway line.
Ooh, where’s the old railway line? And where did it used to go?
Part of the old Severn Valley Line and the GWR. Most immediately coming from Bridgnorth, running through Ironbridge and then a branch off to Wenlock and thence to Craven Arms and generally heading south. We have a mile or so running beside the Linden Field – this due to the fact that Dr. Wm Penny Brookes inventor of Olympian Games (1852), persuaded the railway chaps in the 1860s to build the line right beside the Olympian field so it would bring thousands of visitors to the games. Back then our quiet enclave of Wenlock would have been bursting with Olympian Special trainloads every July, and otherwise busy transporting limestone and sheep. Wish we still had the railway.
Oh, wow, what history …..I think it’s tragic that we lost so many Branch Lines to the Beeching cuts….
Yes, I frequently curse Mr. Beeching. It was so short-sighted, and all to fill the nation up with cars.
Oh yes – the LORRIES!
If only rail freight took more of them off the roads….in a few years, this island will be one giant car/lorry park
My #2 son when he was little called this a ‘airplane blue sky”. Pretty fitting don’t you think?
A fine description, Beverly.
It was certainly a lovely blue sky day this morning – got cloudier here in the afternoon and I think we will have rain over the weekend. Have to make every moment count at this time of year.
‘Have to make every moment count at this time of year.’ Definitely. Today I’ve been tidying the garden, and now a lot of it looks rather horrid. Ah well. Here’s to spring!
Good view. How nice to see all that blue sky! Hopefully it will last through the weekend.
Today is all bluster and gloom, but not frosty.
Looks like an Australian sky, beautiful blue
It didn’t last 😦
Looks beautiful! Our skies have had a bit of everything this past week. Sitting here in silence. For the last 7 days a little head has appeared around the door about this time. Sadly they’re home again now and the house needs restoring to rights before the daughter arrives. 😃😃 Have a lovely weekend, Tish xx
Good there is more to look forward to. That little head will be leaving a big gap. Happy weekend to you too. Gloomy leaf-blowy November here today.
Thank you, Jennie.
You’re welcome, Tish. That blue sky was powerful.
I treasure these late beauties, they help me get through the winter.
They are a heartening sight, aren’t they.
What a nice surprise in November!
