Autumn Colours

The cranes have been moving south since September (much too early!) and we've been dithering about moving back to "winter quarters".  Then a few days of damp cold and a sulky wood burner in the lounge that refused to heat beyond the sofa persuaded us it was time to carry our clothes, food and computers from the house down the track to the cottage.

At which point the weather promptly warmed up again!  So, over the last few days, we have been basking in sunshine that has turned the garden gold and scarlet.  The promise of heavy rain and thunderstorms, however, has had me out with the camera attempting to capture this glorious show before it finally disappears.


  1. Really beautiful, it's a wonderful time of the year, especially as we are on the cusp of not having to have the central heating on every evening. We have a new sucker/blower for the leaves! Ooo Mulcher!

    1. Hello Lesley, thanks for stopping by. I envy you the sucker/blower. :) At the moment I'm gathering ours up as I mow (chops them up quite nicely) but we've high winds and they are coming down faster than I can collect them!

    2. Our two 'Municipal technicians' (as the Mayor's letter calls them - we call them the Communeists ) were out scraping up after the windy yesterday. It will be just as bad tommorrow! Lesley
