Our beech hedge in the garden was at it's best last weekend, and on Sunday I was tempted out with my camera to try and capture the colours, even though it was a dull day. It is also at this time of year that the Castor oil plant flowers with these beautiful cream lacy pompoms.
I spent a while trying to capture the flowers (in focus) with the colour of the beech hedge behind it.
My Sally Holmes rose has a last bloom too. It always amazes me that it can flower for so long (5-6 months).
As the weather stayed fine we decided to take a stroll in Thieves Wood, near Mansfield in the afternoon. Put on a scarf and come with us.
It was great to get some fresh air and enjoy the colours of the leaves, but there weren't many fungi this time.
