Is Autumn your favourite season of the year? Good evening from gorgeous Dean Village, Edinburgh, Scotland! I've had this saved in my "must feature" folder for a while, but now Autumn is most definitely in the air over in the land of clogs, it's a legal requirement I feature golden shots such as this beauty by @thetechcreative 🍂🍁🍂
Dean Village often comes as a pleasant surprise to Edinburgh visitors. Situated just a few minutes walk away from the bustle of Princes Street it's like a little bubble of chocolate-box countryside. And we all love chocolate and the countryside, right? The mills of Dene were first mentioned in King David I's founding charter of Holyrood Abbey, usually dated c. 1145, in which he granted one of his mills of Dene to the Abbey. 872 years! Incredible. In the past the village was the centre of the milling of water mills and the remnants of the industry can still be seen today. Look out for mill stones and carved stone plaques with baked bread and pies.
Today's good news: I found the brand new Jane Austen £10 quid note in my pocket. Very nice it is too! I'm willing to sell for a reasonable price. Bad news: Christmas decorations and stacks of mince pies have appeared in GREAT ABUNDANCE in the nearby supermarket. Look, I love Christmas as the next person... but we are still in September! Bah humbug! Anyway... have a lovely evening.. beautiful shot by @thetechcreative. (Rumours that I purchased a small packet of said mince pies and will scoff with ice-cream whilst the Great British Bakeoff is on the telly tonight are not to be believed 🤓) 🇬🇧

World leaders have gathered today at the United Nations General Assembly to discuss various topics including nuclear weapons and climate change. This session begins every year in September and brings together individuals from the UN’s 193 member states. UN Headquarters, seen here, was designed by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and has served as the official home for the organization since 1952. /// Created by @benjaminrgrant, source imagery: @nearmap
