The early mornings are now much darker and colder! Today was a chance for Jenny and I to have a catch-up so there was much talking as well as walking! We did one of our favourite walks around Shepton, where we walked through farmland and had a great view of the Charlton Road viaduct - see above.
Part of the walk was down a wooded bridleway which always has many interesting shaped branches and twigs on the ground. In the past we have collected these for Christmas decorations etc. and today was no exception! Jenny chose to take a striking branch with a long tall stem - ideal to stand up for a decorative, natural alternative to a Christmas tree!
