We are now having my favourite kind of autumn/winter weather.
Dry, crisp cold with a wonderfully bright sun.
This is perfect for cycling, and the morning ride to work is pure joy with the new gears and stuff on my bike.
Some of the plants are still hanging in there too...
I love these little flowers. I love them so much that, even through I still do not know what they are, I have had my last pic of one put onto my bank card. Call it vanity, but I think it is much nicer than the standard colour that my bank uses.
I have been doing some work on my trip and I am still trying to get to grips with the sheer size of the USA and Canada - the distances are so vast compared with over here. Time-wise, internal flights are so tempting, but I get the feeling that I will be missing out on so much if I do that. More investigation needed, I think!
