Spider webs

We're well into Autumn with lovely early morning mists and dew and the occasional light frost. There's a definite chill in the air even when the sun is shining - as it is now.

The leaves are turning golden and red. the variegated maple and the plums have shed nearly all their leaves. The big ash tree in the field is dropping leaves already, even though it was so late in coming into leaf this year we were worried about ash die-back. (Actually it's mostly young ones that suffer from this and our tree must be at least 150 years old).

The dew in the mornings gives some wonderful sights like these amazing spiders webs.
