The Purple Headed Mountains....

I couldn't resist stopping to take a few photo's of the gorgeous purple heather currently covering the hills that surround Sheffield.


 How beautiful it all looks.

I do love very hot summer weather, but we are heading into my favourite season.

The heather is wonderful isn't it? I've never managed to really capture the colour of it in any of my photos.

I've noticed these lovely hills recently too. It really is feeling and smelling autumnal now, I'm a bit excited about it!

What a lovely sight the heather makes. It looks gorgeous. I also look forward to the coming Autumn with its cooler evenings and sunny days.
