Some photos from two days in September 2018 show the state of the cliffs beside a path I sometimes use when the tide is too high for a walk along the beach. The path has been moving progressively inland. In some pictures there are fence posts from its earlier boundaries. New fences and signs have been erected to redirect people, who may have continued to use the old path, after it was diverted.

How long until the grassy top collapses?

I am including links to some of my previous posts with photos of the same are for comparison.
Some of the pictures in a post from 2015 are of similar views
A fenced off path also has altered since almost two years ago.
I am linking this post to the Daily Post’s photo challenge, It is easy being green.
The king cups are just coming into bloom in the wildflower garden, which is open to the public. Last year’s growth of tall annual stems has recently been strimmed. There is new growth appearing among the remaining dead stuff.
The pond is covered in green weed. Iris leaves are a different shade of green. Celandine flowers are yellow in the speckled sunlight. Ivy on the wall makes dark patches, which at first sight could be mistaken for gaps.

On the beach there were pools left by the tide. Seaweed in various shades of green and brown could be seen.
Cliff with overhang
Boulders above and below
I also took two photos of a cautionary nature. Cliffs are battered by wind and waves in stormy weather. There is a footpath along the top of the cliffs. Anyone straying from it for a better view would not be able to see where the overhang begins. The grassy edge of the cliff is unsupported. The final photo has no green. The boulders on the beach originated much higher on the cliffs. As the sandy soil has been washed away, huge stones have fallen from various heights. Can you see the large white stone high up? I don’t know when it will fall to join the others below it. Cliff edges are dangerous, both from above and from below.
