Cold and damp here in the north west of England - not the nicest kind of autumnal weather. I felt sorry for the Wonder Horse, who's knocking on a bit (25 years old last March) and let him stay in in a nice warm stable with lots of hay and a big breakfast. The field is very muddy already.

I expect those of you in the New England area are enjoying the change in leaf colours - or is that over. Something I've always fancied seeing. (You can forget DisneyLand as far as I'm concerned - all those children!)

New England isn't the only area of the country that has spectacular fall color - the Midwest has gorgeous oak, maple, aspen and birch trees, too. I really miss it this time of year, although thanks to climate change, it's later than usual.

We have to go all the way to the mountains to see good fall color here in Virginia. In our area, it doesn't get cold enough to cause the color change, so the leaves pretty much turn brown and fall off - except for the few maples around, including the one DH planted in front of our house. But it's still too early here.

I bet it's the same one. I remembered the name - Bachmann Park. What's funny is I found it after taking a slow abbreviated "road trip" through the back roads of Manette. I just came on the park because it was the end of a road I'd been following.

I can't resist going down long windy or hilly roads. And I love to look at houses. Problem is, I look like I'm casing the neighborhood when I do that and so many of them have a Neighborhood Watch sign out.

Today is much cooler out but with sun, although I do see a few clouds coming up.

I don't remember if it was named Bachmann Park, but it was a few blocks from Manette Bridge....it was close to 20 years ago. Was there a little gazebo out over the water, too? If so, it's the same little park. I lived near the intersection of Trenton Ave. and Shore Dr.
I'll have to look it up on googlemaps. :-)

It was nice and 60 this morning when I got up but it's going up to 90 this afternoon, and even warmer tomorrow before it starts to drop back down. I hate hot weather in the fall.
Oh, and we're getting a red flag alert also, meaning no open fires anywhere in the county. That means hot, dry winds, and very low humidity.
