Autumn colour ahead of the storm

Had a day off sewing on Saturday as one of my old work colleagues came over. Being young and wild we went to a couple of National Trust properties. It looked like we would get rained on, but we managed the Courts and Lacock Abbey and the rain didn’t start until we having dinner in the pub in Bathampton.
