Autumn arrived late in Sussex this year.
Otis who joined us for some walks whilst his Mum was busy.
At the very end of October some of the trees at East Court and Ashplatts Wood in East Grinstead were just starting to change colour.
November and the Ashdown Forest is starting to look rather unsummery.
Stopped on my way back across the Forest at Millbrook West and caught this dramatic sunset.
Mid November and it was still very mild. Some trees at Standen are bare, others golden and some are still hanging on. The unseasonal weather is confusing everyone.

Leaves were on the ground in Holly Bush Wood
Back at East Court at the end of November and the trees are definitely turning to Autumnal shades.
By the time we visited Buchan Country Park, Autumn was in full swing.
These are some of the stunning wood carving dotted around the park
December and we were back on the Ashdown Forest.
Below are some of the Exmoor Ponies used for selective grazing and conservation of the heathland.
