Walking to work, as it was raining, I walked over the top path and noticed these lovely unripe blackberries in the hedge between the carpark and the path, with the five sail windmill in the background. The first sign of autumn. Whipped the phone out and took a few snaps.

I am daily painting at the moment and working on small canvases. “Autumn Skerries Mills” was painted in oils on an 8″ x 8″ board. Still wet it was whipped away and framed. One of the many benefits of my husband being a Framer!
