Saturday Morning Bike Ride.

Another dry and mild autumn morning...

Pigeons in flight.

 A last wild rose, with beastie.

Characterful fencepost and stubbly field.

Tones of golden brown.

 Seedhead silhouette.

Bright rosehips.

 A favourite view.

 Yellowhammer (I think!)

Farm sign with balancing sheep. Meikle means big, in other parts of Scotland it's written and pronounced as muckle.

 Seeing double.

 First sight of some of the buildings of Formakin Estate.

More buildings on the Formaking Estate. It was also known locally as the monkey house due to the many carvings of monkeys on the roofs. You can just make out some on top of the roof of the building on the left. I'll zoom in on them...
 The pair on the right of the roof.

 A single monkey on the left.

 More estate buildings, also with rooftop monkeys.

 Red campion still flowering.

Squashed Irn Bru can.

 Leaving the buildings behind.

 Recently sown winter barley.

Looking across the Clyde.

Horse with pink coat.

The road ahead, heading west with the Clyde to the north.

Sheep dots.

 A once grand entrance.

 Gate detail.

 A road with a view.

 Ivy ready to bloom.

 Umbellifer.

Sticky willy seed pods.

Rusty roof.

 Bike shot.

 Distant wind farm.

 Male chaffinch.

Conkers.

 Farm buildings, staw bales and misty mountains.

Sheep and pylons.

Autumn fruiting raspberries outside the bike shed. Delicious!

The schools here are now off for a week for the October break. Yippee!

The soft autumn days are a change from the recent Indian summer, aren't they? Not that I'm complaining - it's lovely to have so many different weathers.
Good for you keeping up blogging - I am really struggling because it all takes so LONG! Until I started on Instagram I didn't realise quite how convoluted the process was.

Nice collection of photos... but if you are submitting a squashed Irn Bru Can as one of the examples of autumn colour I have to protest as it stays the same all year round :o)

You always have great photos, I like the monkey decorations and the sign.

Your photos are so interesting. I love the one of the rose with beastie and the rosehips, especially. The monkeys too. I really enjoy decorations like those on old houses. I hope you have a good break. We're having ours too, with return to school on Tuesday.

I thought that the Irn Bru can said 49p each or 2 for £1 but realised my mistake later.

I do like those buildings on the estate, have we seen those previously?

My favourite shots are of the water and the blue hills in the background.

So many beautiful pictures. I love the monkeys! What an interesting story there.

I've just really enjoyed catching up with your last few posts and your fabulous photos. I love the bike against the wall shot.
