Missed last week and very late this week – Sorry Cee. The pressures of Christmas and family🎄😅 Here’s my entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge

The High Road, East Finchley, with some Christmas lights…

Christmas Lights and The Phoenix

No Penguins I’m afraid, but here’s a Starling in the snow…

Finally, a blur of White, Red, Green and yellow lights…

After missing last week’s CMMC, this week I’m back with some October colors for Cee’s challenge 🙂

Despite a long dry summer, the Oak trees have a good crop of Acorns…

Acorns

…Many of them already fallen to earth where the Squirrels and Jays will gather them to store for Winter. The Acorns may be brown, but the leaves are still green.

Autum is favoured by some flowering plants – Michaelmas Daisies being one that is well known. But this year I’ve got some Japanese Anemones to share…

Autumn is a time for Fungi – I believe this is a member of the Omphalotus family…

The days grow shorter as we move into mid-October and if there is a Sunrise, it is often a watery one…

Autumn Sunrise

…but, in the middle of the day we can be treated to a glorious blue sky to contrast with the changing colors of the trees…
