I knew that I wouldn’t have much to share with you of a crafting nature early this week so on Saturday I decided to go for a walk on the Common and take some autumnal pictures.
At the start I was hopeful.
But as I went to different areas, I realised that autumn was very muted on the Common at present.
Here is a view across Cemetery Lake that shows the sort of almost autumn colour I was confronted with.
But people were out enjoying themselves in the sunshine.
Taking the children to the playpark,
And going for walks.
I took a few pictures by the edge of the lake,
including some swan pictures.
I love swans.
One close-up. The feathers look so soft.
It was strange, there was brown but some of the greens looked almost spring like.
But I was pleased to get a picture of a late blackberry, not having had one for my earlier CAL post.
I hope you enjoyed this stroll round Southampton Common.
