|Setting off up the main road|
|Heading towards the smartly painted bridge|
|These red berries really lit up a dark little corner of dead and dying foliage|
|Love the drop of water just about to fall from this rose hip|
Other than the odd bunch of berries, everything is looking decidedly bare and wintry along the greenway.
|Winter is almost here|
|Leaves all gone now|
Back up through the park. Passed lots of people walking their dogs and Sallydog had a good old grump at some of them. You know I am sure that she really doesn't think she is a dog so gets most offended when she is approached by any other dogs! What a little madam.
Lots of noise was coming from the cemetery that is right next to the park so we decided to investigate. It was the Community Payback people. They were in the graveyard strimming, cutting back and gathering up fallen leaves. Community payback is the new name for community service, so these workers were people who have committed a crime and have been sentenced to work on community projects as a way of paying back society for their crime. They are all wearing high-vis jackets with community payback emblazoned on the back. I spoke to the men that I passed and congratulated them on a job well done. I don't know if they were offenders or supervisors but they were genuinely doing a good job. It is making a huge difference to a sadly neglected and unmaintained cemetery.
