Attractive autumn colour

Once again, I’m out and about in Lincolnshire on my visits. I had to stop off a couple or – actually several times – to take a few quick snaps.
The picture of the cottage was late in the day as the mist started to come in and it was a ‘typical’ November afternoon.
We’re on the final stage of autumnal colour I think..the trees are hanging on to their spectacular oranges, golds and reds. Some are now bare and displaying dramatic starkness.
Looking forward now to early spring and the emergence of flowering bulbs and the buds on trees.
Saying that, we still have winter interest too, hellebores for a start!

Superb photos and I love the carpet of leaves on the ground in the last one. You always find some interesting buildings to go in your photos too.
Thank you for taking the time to stop and to share them with us.

I love the carpet of leaves too Kate! You have such a good job which takes you round the countryside. I love to see the autumn colours and you had plenty there! I have my huge cherry tree hanging on to its leaves and I think the next lot of strong winds will take the rest.
Thanks for sharing!

Great pictures Kate, I love the descriptive term dramatic starkness of the trees, it could easily be used in a poem, love the shimmering gold of that beech tree, Autumn is drawing to a close and a new season beckons, thanks for sharing.

The first building looks as if it was previously part of a castle..were those openings in the brickwork arrow slits,do you know,Kate?...Some very lovely photos there.

Thanks Ange, I’m pleased you think so! It’s definitely a pretty county, I’m very lucky my patients live in some picturesque places.
Eileen, I haven’t any visits in Messingham at the moment l but, I do pass through regularly. I’ve noticed an old Victorian school has been transformed into an antique centre, cafe, deli etc..I do hope I get the chance to,pop in sometime.
Thanks kindly, Chris, I appreciate your thoughts. I like to see if I can find an interesting house or building of sorts. I’ll keep on with the search!
Thanks Rose, that’s made me smile! It’s certainly a scenic drive I have on my ‘rounds’. I try not to take it for granted. It’s a lovely job with lovely people too. I hope your cherry tree hangs in in there! I’ve noticed the wind is picking up this evening.
Julien, what a lovely message! I’m well chuffed. Yes, autumn is almost over and winter will be with us soon..I’ll try to capture some stark, wintry scenes hopefully!
Hi Julia, thank you. The building is a listed barn in Kirton Lindsey, circa mid 1700s to late 1700s. I didn’t show the full pic, it has a door at the front and it’s a longer building than shown.
Sheila, thank you kindly, I appreciate your message. I’ll keep posting!
Klahanie, thanks for the award! Most kind. ☺️ I enjoy the well-being the travelling to and from my patients brings. I’m lucky to be able to see it all. I’m grateful for your comment.
Thanks Amsterdam, really appreciate your feedback too. I’m pleased you find the pics atmospheric. 😊

It looks gorgeous the colours are fabulous I love the old barn , I've no idea where Messingham is but your photos make me want to visit it :o)

What a talented lass you are Kate! These photos are lovely - welcome here as our big trees are all sycamore and ash and their leaves are long gone.

Thank you Amy! I love old rustic buildings like the barn. I often dream of what I could do with them in regards renovating! 😊
Aw Sue! Thank you! You’re a sweetie! A lot of trees did lose their foliage earlier didn’t they! Still, it’s a lovely season from September through to November. x

Nice autumn colour in your photos Kate, You are lucky to be travelling around in such a picturesque area.

lovely photos and colours Kate, must be a real pain trying to remember that you have to work, when driving through countryside like that you have there.

Thank you Hywel, I definitely do appreciate it! I’m a lucky nurse. 😊

Thanks kindly, Davey. You are right, sometimes I get caught up in the surroundings during the journey - all of a sudden I remember I’m en route to see a patient! Usually on the longer trips! I do drive safely though!
