After spending a large part of the day getting caught up with some gardening, we left a lamb tagine cooking in the oven and took Jet for a walk around Irby Dale. Again the colours are looking good, although I was intrigued to notice that in the depths of the wood the leaves remained green only donning their Autumn hues on the edges or in clearings within the wood. I wonder if this is because they are less sheltered in these situations or they receive more light. It was very quiet in the dale today with few signs of life, perhaps because it was the end of a dull, still afternoon.
