Rowan & birch
41/52 for the group 2016 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: O is for Overhead

I've gone for the easy option of trees. They're still very green for this time of year.

Rowan & birch

These trees are by the oak tree I posted about previously.. I hadn't planned to go up there again and G was checking the thermometers by himself at midday each day, driving up to the Cader Idris car park and then walking a little way up the track to the oak tree. But last Wednesday, I had forgotten all about the thermometer checking and decided to drive into town and leave the Daihatsu in the Co-op car park while I went to the Welsh conversation group in the cafe. I normally walk to the cafe, but I wanted to pick up extra food supplies and, the reason for needing the vehicle, a bag of shredded bark to put as a mulch around the jostaberry bushes.

So, I chatted in Welsh and we drank tea and coffee and finally we all went our separate ways and I made it back to the car park before the 2 hours was up and zoomed round to get a few food items before driving to the builders' merchants next door to the Co-op where I duly bought the sack of bark.

Arriving home, I found the house deserted. Oh, I thought, he's gone for a walk as the weather has turned sunny now. ... And then I realised .... Noooooo! He'll be walking up to the tree because I took the vehicle!!!

So I leaped back into the Daihatsu and drove up after him. He was still some distance from the car park so he was glad I'd come to find him. Anyway, though I really wasn't wearing the right shoes and didn't even have a coat, it was so nice that I joined him in the walk to the tree and grabbed these photos while I was there.

G has a new tree now, along the estuary, but I'll remember to walk into town tomorrow so we don't have a repeat performance. :)

Colours are beginning to turn this side of the dyke, but as you say, still a lot of green.

Love that battered gate but you knew I would! :o)

Lovely shots. Our trees are just turning here in Kentucky in the States. The weather here has been unseasonably warm and dry and it's delayed the change a bit.

*cleans spectacles*

I first read that as "O is for Overlord"... Been reading too much fantasy, I think.

Beautiful shots.
