November can bring wondrous sunsets and gorgeous moons, this past few days have really delivered- a bright full moon rising in the East, every crisp crater visible and right beside it, a sparkling view of Jupiter.
This morning the cats were insistent that they would go outside through the front door. The front door faces South and out there this morning was a sky half-full of pearly swathes of clouds, the river valley hiding under a layer of pure white mist. My big Whitebeam was dropping its red leaves as I watched, a sure sign of overnight frost, frost that had already turned to sparkling droplets in the early sunshine. The back garden was a real contrast, the ground white with frost and plants still covered with a rime of ice crystals.
Proper November weather- should be a wonderful sunset tonight, this morning a fresh coffee in a frosty Wedgwood cup, decorated with Wintry clematis seed heads.
