Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness

The onset of Autumnal Evenings has encouraged me to write a new post. Somehow, |I don't feel the need to blog about all the amazing outside things I get up to in sunshine  but captured moments in the midst of wild weather seem like moments to treasure and think about.
I walked with Tim and Pippin (dog) along mile after mile of unsurfaced shrub lined lanes from Lixwm to Rhes y Cae. The lanes were joined by field and woodland. We only occasionally could see the beautiful landscape rolling off to the Clwydians Hills but being closed in focused my attention to the microcosm of songsters and scurriers that live in our hedgerows....what a cosy way to be sheltered from the wild wind that whipped over our heads as we walked along the ancient lanes of Flintshire.
