Autumn here (almost)

The leaves are starting to fall now in our garden and another few weeks will see autumn set in strongly.
Our garden - leaves now falling fast.
This morning we went to Anglesey Abbey (National Trust) where the weather was good with temperatures due to reach the low 20 deg C mark this afternoon.

Are we being spoiled? Is this the calm before the storm of a very harsh winter?

Wicken Fen walk 1.74km

Highland cow at Wicken Fen
This afternoon, my wife and I walked around the boardwalk at Wicken Fen. I took my Samsung smart phone with GPS so I was able to measure how far we walked - 1.74km, which, for me in my present state, was good. There were several swallows about as well as dragon and damsel flies, and butterflies.

Anglesey Abbey walk this morning

This morning, we did a 1.62km walk around Anglesey Abbey. Weather was good but blustery. Dahlias are already in bloom, about 4 weeks early. We are so lucky having this NT property on our doorstep.
