November's words

Hello November, you have landed with an icy bang.  
Overnight you smothered October's sublime gentle sunshine and comforting warmth 
with your chilly grey skies and cutting to-the-bone winds. 

The trees are losing their leaves revealing not only their branches 
but the roe deer that secretly live beneath them.
Today the clouds hung low and the air was filled with November's damp breath. 
My fingers were brittle as I tried to do a last few end of season chores in the walled garden. 
I was very glad to be home with the fire chuckling away 
while my hands thawed around 
a much wanted mug of tea.

So, as my brain gently warmed up, I began to think about November's words. 
Hmm. Right - here goes, last month produced some amazing photos and stories, 
I think our best selection so far, however, as this list will be the last of 2016 
(December is full enough without rushing around hunting for photos!) 
let's have another excellent month of pictures and anecdotes!

A photograph inspired by a word, words inspired by the photos - November 's Scavenger photo-hunt list - enjoy!

Remember to think laterally, interpret as YOU fancy,
be it a current photo or a favourite one from your past. 
We'll reconvene and post our words and photos on Friday 25th November.

Have fun!


  1. Mind reader! I was only musing yesterday that we will THE WORDS soon and lo and behold they arrived. Had a quick read and nothing springs to mind but I will give it a go.

  2. Oh deer (see what I did there?) I totally missed the deadline for last month. I have enjoyed looking at everyones pictures though. I will check the linky and see if any more have been added. It has suddenly turned rather damp and cold here today. X

  3. I do sporadic blogging using time when time presents itself to me. I feel sad that I can't participate in some wonderful opportunities in blog land. It's however marvelous to see the post that all the creative people out there came up with. You took great photos of the little deer. They move so fast. Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. As always my dear, a lovely thoughtful set of words for all those clever enough/organised enough to participate :)

    Sorry to take ages catching up on your blog, taking me ages to catch up with having been away!

  5. Lovely reading your post, lovely description, almost feels as though I am there with you. Like Lovely Lady I also read through the November list of topics and nothing much sprung up out of my collections. Will definitely have to think far out of the box this time. xx

  6. Lovely words & photos. Wow, what a 'uh', great set of words. We'll definitely be putting our thinking caps on for this one. Your weather sounds a lot like ours at the moment. You just wouldn't think it was late Spring here, though NSW are suffering bushfires. We do live on a funny continent. Take care.

  7. Lovely photos, you were lucky to be so close to the deer! Although it is cold, I do love this time of year for the colours, and the fact that I can light the fire! :)
