Autumn Colours Fade

Fallen Leaves

Photos: November 19, 2016

The last warm days for a while - and the last of the leaves are dropping quickly. In a strange way there is more intensity to the sun when it shines as there is much less shade.


A single leave glows in the late afternoon sun.

Protected for Winter

This is not a cemetery - rather it is the work of a conscientious gardener who is protecting the plants from the ravages of winter. Our weather can be tough and the splashes of slush from cars even tougher on the plants as it is full of the salt and sand that is spread on the roads. We are not there yet, but snow is around the corner.


  1. I’d like to have a wool sweater wtih the color of the leaves in the first photo. “A single leave glows in the late afternoon sun” looks like embers of life metaphorically.


  2. We seem to be having parallel weather at the moment. Last weekend was beautiful and bright with blue skies. And then this week some people had a little snow and now the rain is falling as if there is no tomorrow. There are still leaves on the big trees behind the house.
