There begins to be the hint of autumn around ... chilly temperatures in the mornings, an abundance of berries - rowan, elderberry, blackberry and of course those magnifient conkers (horse chestnuts) - and hints of red and gold visible on a few trees. I want to hang on to summer for a bit longer! A walk in my local woods shows that green still dominates. I love the way the sunlight filters through the leafy canopy. Hirst Woods is a patch of semi-ancient woodland and has a good mixture of trees including oak, beech, sycamore and birch.
