|'A prickle of hedgehogs'|
The RSPB Wildlife Garden at Flatford was about to close for the winter, but I just loved the novel collective noun on the brown post!
There was one solitary Ladybird, flexing her wings. You can see just how long these wings are in comparison with the spotted elytra.

We had visited the lakes at Needham Market before, but had not noticed this tunnel. The sunlit disc above was actually a blue sign ...
A little further round the path we encountered a fiery Spindle tree, with these stunning berries ... The wood was used for spinning - hence the name.
There were also some Rosehips, adding to another splash of autumn colour ...
I recall (like the person who commented on a photo here) going to the local child clinic at regular intervals to collect our allocation of rosehip syrup and orange juice for the youngest family members.
