A walk in the park

What a spectacular day yesterday, it jumped back up into the 50's and we took advantage of the respite from the chill by going out and surveying the state of things in the botanical gardens. Now that the season is over, there's no entry fee, and since it's just a short distance form our place, we spent a few hours strolling. Mostly everything looked dead and ready for winter. But here and there, there were still splashes of color.

And now I get why red berries are a holiday symbol too.

There was a special gnarled looking tree we goofed around with. There were people there feeding the birds who would land on the outstretched hand containing birdseed.

Anyway, not much else to report, just wanted to post up some pictures of the day yesterday and wish everyone a good week.

I'll be back tomorrow with more fun stuff.

Love the berry pic

Yesterday really was beautiful. I'd planned on staying in, working, and getting some chores done around the house, but I ended up not being able to resist the warm weather and going for a walk around the Old Port.

Loved the berries too!

There was a cold snap this morning over here in Blighty, lovely sun this afterrnoon.

Do you like your martini's shaken but not stirred 007 Sticky Crow man? ;-)

Have a good week!

I like the red berry tree! I've been thinking of making our wreaths early this year to give the kids a chance to add a few branches; and those berries would be perfect!

Do you know what kind of tree it is?

Sounds like a great way to spend an Autumn's day.

Indeed sunday was a good day, I was happy it was warm, I had to load my car with the winter tire and do some random stuff. Not like friday where it was SO cold.
