Today: Foliage, Newmarket road: Foliage, Mount Pleasant: Foliage, Lime tree road.
Since rain returned so has green. Today my eye is caught by varieties of green, structural foliage and hints of red beginning. A cold morning, gloves needed. A typical Tuesday with increasing numbers of collections. Chatted to a customer in Harford Manor close who shared her story of kittens she has hand reared since they were three days old. Hats off to her.
The missing bank holiday mail and parcels caught up with us today. A full van and heavy bags. Fortunately a perfect delivery day, gently sunny and not too hot. Delivering in Ipswich road we noticed an injured motorcyclist (possibly College student) have to wait almost am hour for an ambulance. Sobering.
Today: Early light on temporary fencing in Grove Avenue: Light and shadow on Van, Newmarket Road.
Happy to have Kelly back on delivery. Out early and the light is soft and dappled. Enjoyed the long shadows and feeling cold. Heavy overnight rain has cleared out the spiders webs and the pavements of autumnal debris.
Today: Intensely maroon plant, Allen’s Lane: Conkers, Mount Pleasant
Working with Tony. Always a pleasure to meet, chat and work with new colleagues. Not too much mail, but a wet showery day. Some heavier downpours which brought seeds, twigs and leaves down. Cold and damp on finishing the walk.
