A Day In Autum

Making ready for a still life with leaves cones and pods

P1010506

from the grounds of Churchill’s Chartwell on a wet and windy day
with just a hint of sun jutting from the clouds

P1010457 

passing the lake where he meditated watching the endless circles of his golden coy

P1010465

listening to the sound of water falling on grey rocks feeding the feathery green foliage

P1010452

seeing the studio where he mixed pigments ready to capture light and shade on canvas

P1010456

before he walked by the wall he had built before the war when so much younger

P1010483

maybe pausing briefly in the kitchen garden which then and now is still planted
and nurtured today.

P1010503     P1010505

Menu tonight  Churchillian Veg Soup and Chartwell Baked Apples

P1010468

This visit was on Thursday but  making this page today has been a just a tiny distraction  from the very  bad and desperately sad world news.
