Preparing for the winter

Winter is coming to West Moss-side.   


The sky is full of skeens of pink footed geese. The hedgerows are heavy with berries and the winter thrushes have arrived for their feasting and the flocks are chattering away up the lane.  The colours on the moss are turning, with the deep russet of the cotton grass leaves looking like burning embers against the washed out ash-white of the purple moor grass blowing in the breeze.   Thoughts are turning to new workshops for the New Year and the Christmas winter courses are all full.
