Grasmere Rainbows, Autumn, and Halloween.

October in Grasmere has been an amazing month for rainbows.

The beautiful weather we had over the summer has led to sunshine and showers and with the showers, rainbows. Lots of rainbows!

Early morning has been beautiful too. Great cloud inversions looking towards the mere.

and once the clouds dispersed a little, wonderful reflections.

October in Grasmere also means Autumn Festival and thoughts of Harvest. It was pouring down this morning but this display in the entrance to St Oswald’s Church brightened up the morning.

Crossing the road at Church Stile I noticed the National Trust shop was looking very Autumnal too.

Halloween is also fast approaching and in College street the Herdy shop was brightening up a rainy day.

Lucia’s Takeaway had been busy with their own personalised pumpkin.

and at National Trust Allan Bank it was pumpkin central as they were having a pumpkin trail over the half term holiday.

Cocoa Hearts chocolate shop had lots of people sheltering from the rain making chocolates to take home.

and a witch seemed to have taken up residence in the Good Bag shop next door.

So despite the rain, Autumn is a great time to be in Grasmere, and when the clouds part…..
