Canon Rawnsley's November at the Lakes

Wow! what a fabulous few days - a heavy frost overnight left the trees looking like a winter wonderland. Also, snow on all the hills and mountains. Winter has come early .... it's still officially Autumn!

Canon Rawnsley has something to say about November in the Lakes which perfectly chimes with the weather and conditions we are currently experiencing.

"We are fortunate in the Lake Country in having a longer leafage of the trees than is found in the Midlands or the South. When November comes the woods have not yet waned and are full of Autumn glory, and though it may happen that a sudden frost with a strong wind following, may rob us of this glory in a night, if we have the usually mild and calm weather that is our portion, our Lakeland woodlands are still in leaf as late as the middle of the month."
