Poppies in November

Blackbird at dawn on rowan tree (may have come from the Continent)

Watching Autumnwatch the other night, Chris Packham was so frustrated by the lack of migrating wild birds coming into the UK due to the unseasonably mild weather that he took to throwing the magnetic birds on his migration map on the floor!

An unseasonal poppy

In my garden, there is a perennial poppy which has thrown up a giant red flower, and the honeysuckle is rampaging along the ivy on the back wall.


Nearly all the leaves are down though, apart from the evergreen shrubs

The weather veers between clear blue skies one day, see the moon at 9.30 in the morning, and damp and grey like today. England and its weather, a source of constant change and mystification.
