 I predict a riot

…a riot...of colour..!

Golden, auburn, russets and rouge, burnt umber, ocher, rich orange, deep yellow - pumpkins glowing and sparklers burning.  Aileen and Ted's wedding lit up my Autumn and the seasonal colour of Friars Carse shone in a spectacular end to the year.  Here we are then… it's Aileen and Ted's perfect day in Dumfries and Galloway.
