The red, yellow, bronze and crimson leaves of autumn are always a joy to behold, particularly spectacular in the Peak District (or perhaps we are biased?). However, perhaps not as I remember John’s uncle and aunt, Tim and Peggie Sessions, used to make a point of coming over from their very beautiful corner of Herefordshire every October just to enjoy the colours here.
This year they seem even better than ever. We have had such a wonderful October and today, the 1st November, has been perfect: warm and cloudlessly sunny. Parwich residents were even spotted lingering long over a prolonged lunch and chilled wine in their gardens. (Too discreet to take photos to prove it…).
This Indian Summer cannot last, sadly, and no doubt sooner or later night frosts and a few strong winds will transform the autumn colours just into a tantalising memory.
Our resident photographer has been out and about, snapping different views, to remind us when the memories begin to fade. He doesn’t ‘photoshop’ them so the vibrant colours are as they truly are. Do have a look!
