Looking Back

No walk this morning, except to Tesco for shopping and a 'big breakfast', so I thought it would be nice to look back at what was catching my eye on this day in past years.
Two years ago my eye was drawn to the Autumnal colours on the top of Shipley hill.  Particularly the bright red of the Acer.
In the same spot, the Yew trees were adding their own redness to the scene.   These waxy fruits are well known (erroneously) to be poisonous.  In fact, the fruit itself is harmless, it's the seed inside which is poisonous.
Berries of a different kind also dot the hedgerows in this area.  This time they belong to a variegated Holly tree, reminding us that Christmas is just a few weeks away now!
