Even though we are close to the coast, the Scarborough area has stunning forests which are managed by the Forestry Commission.
During the mid to late autumn, these forests become even more peaceful as some trees drop their leaves while other keep their evergreen colours.
Forests become even quieter as nature heads towards winter and animals start to hibernate.
Mists gather in open spaces and gloss the grasses and spider’s webs with moisture.
Nature is going to sleep until the spring.
Yet it’s always worth looking upwards too at this time of year. As the tall trees of the forest reach overhead, you can see blue skies between the top branches.
Our trees are the lungs of our planet and we can also enjoy them and admire them from down on the ground.
