A Walk to Avebury on the Morning of the first Frost of the Winter

On Wednesday 13th of November, we had the first frost of the winter, it has been an amazingly mild autumn with many plants like Fuchsias and Rudbeckias still flowering freely.
In fact the frost was so light, it has not affected many plants.
These frosty photos were taken just before Ladder Lane on the edge of the Burderop Estate:

It was sad to see that the veteran beech featured in Natural England's walks has just been felled because it was damaged in the recent storms.
Further along there were still some roses flowering profusely:
 And a Fuchsia close by:
Once onto the Ridgeway, the cow parsley skeletons were very dramatic:

After just over 3 hours striding out in the sun, it was disappointing to see the road resurfacing going on in Avebury, not the usual views or smells:

On a more fragrant note, the quince jelly not only looks good, but tastes wonderful:
