Downward looking

It's hard to not not look down while out walking the past few days. Changes underfoot every few steps.  Here, yellow speckles of Lime tree leaves on tarmac. There, papery pink Sycamore polka dots. Then, curvy oak leaves making splashes of burnt sienna. Sometimes scattered, sometimes mixing all together. Sometimes spattered on green grass, sometimes scattered on navy tarmac.

Above, blackberries and "jinny-joes" for a belated September birthday. Now to unwrap a slice of the belated birthday cake from tin-foil and put the kettle on!

Be-jewelled Autumn

 Have you ever noticed how the colours of Autumn are full of jewel and gem tones? Gold, ruby, bronze, copper, amber, topaz. Even smudges of amethyst on blackberry stained fingers. Like as if the trees are arraying themselves in all their rich loveliness before Winter's unadorned repose.

Glimpses of be-jewelled trees, footpaths, doorsteps, window-panes, windscreens and puddles to your week!

Little Red, Little Autumn

This little red fellow has been sitting on my desk for some time now....we shall see what becomes of him.

 Little leaf
