This is the entry thread for 'Compliments of the season'.

Take a picture that sums up the current season for you. That might be people relaxing on a beach or in the great outdoors generally (or sheltering from an unexpected shower  Wink); or wildlife, plants or insects that are particular to the current season, or a broader landscape or cityscape.

The rowan trees are heavy with berries now. They say it's a sure sign of a hard winter to come. (and what a beautiful morning today!)

Clear skies and moonlit scenes typify this time of year for me!  This week has been most unseasonal though, this was the only clear night we had.

Chateau Monbazillac

The summer means endless return visits to local tourist attractions with house guests in tow:

Sunshine and showers. Not necessarily the best picture I have taken this week, but the one that seems to me to sum up the week best. It was taken yesterday at Mount Ephraim Gardens in Kent. We sat out a rain shower under the shade of some trees and were rewarded with wonderful golden light.
