Fresh Air by the Fishponds

Last night I had that telltale tickle in my throat, and I woke up this morning with a VILE cold. Although we now have lovely fire, I decided to go for walk this afternoon, to brush away from of the cobwebs. I had a wander round one of Eynsham’s treasures – the Abbey Fishponds.

Eynsham had an abbey until naughty old Henry VIII fell for Anne Boleyn, and the church’s money. The Anglican church, St. Leonard’s (on the right), and the Roman Catholic church, St. Peter’s (on the left), are both on the site.

I was a bit late for the autumn colour…

…but there was still plenty to see.

I was also able to enjoy one of my favourite of life’s small pleasures – kicking through piles of fallen leaves.

A Field of Clocks

I realise that it must seem strange to post an Autumn picture in the Spring. However, I’ve finally found an editing tool that doesn’t cause me to spit blood and I’ve been playing….a lot…too much..

We’ve hardly had a Summer and now the signs of Autumn are here! There are a couple of places in the village with this lovely maple. I just drink in that glorious expanse of red.

PS A kindly friend tells me that this is in fact virginia creeper not maple. Still a glorious colour though 8-).
