I walk as much as possible in the forest before the last colours are gone. I know too well what is waiting – grey November. This walk was last week – and there was no wind or rain. Only stillness and the occational, faint, sound of a bird. Mostly robins now.
I love the way the colours change with the light and the surroundings. Inside the denser parts of the forest, the leaves are still green. Closer to the meadows, the light is brighter and the yellow and brown colours dominate.
When I walked out of the forest and onto the gravel road, the sun came shining through and the slender young birches glowed. They are waiting for next year’s Spring festival.
On the right side of the road, an old gate is standing alone, protecting a seemingly abandoned house…
…immersed in a haven of colours.
A few days later, most of the leaves were gone. I am grateful for this day of harmony – something to remember in grey and moody November.

How I wish we had autumn in Thailand!
But have other things beautifully coloured!
Good afternoon, dear Ann-Christine,

Wishing you a wonderful November

Thank you – I hope your November is cooler than ours though. We still have meterological summer… It is scary.
Wishing you all the best.
here it’s the same. It’s much too warm and sunny. A bit like in spring. It’s s scary indeed.
Keep healthy and happy

Sad to hear that…but it is to be expected, the way we treat Mother Earth. Stay well. ♥♥♥♥
Lovely photos Ann-Christine!
Marvellous. This woodland should be twinned with the woodland I was walking through yesterday. Such tranquility. I didn’t even hear a robin. Just the rushing and roaring of the nearby river.
Ah, thank you, Margaret. We have no river though…lucky you!
I know. It completes the solace.
Such a sense of peace! Just a rustle in the undergrowth… Happy Thursday, Ann-Christine!
Peace is what we need, yes.
Beautiful!! This year it seems I forgot to do that – walk in the forest in autumn! I wonder if the leaves would still be there if I get the chance to go there🤔
You will have to try!
Thanks Leya..I managed to do it today :-). But it was not a good day for taking pictures 😦 as the sky was totally white.
Beautiful scenery. The abandoned house is a great find
Thank you, Nora – yes. I hadn’t seen it before.
That was such a beautiful walk Ann-Christine. That gate and house 👍 You must go by again at get photos of them, before and after it snows.
The first forest photo is so wonderful love the colour and the lighting 🤗💕
Thank you so much, Brian! And yes – if it will snow…we have temperatures 10 degrees higher than usual. Right now it is still meterologically summer here…
A beautiful walk! Thanks for posting!
