Autumn leaves

‘Tis that time of year when we have days and nights of damp fog and chilly drizzle alternating with days of crystal-blue skies and autumn-brisk sunshine.

It’s also that time of year when the leaves of our big, much-loved plane tree are turning from bright cheerful green to hues of orange-brown and russet.

I love how the light of the sun shines on and through the leaves, and how the tree seems to be shivering in the bone-chilling breeze.

The dancing leaves seem to be aglow with a fire from deep within.

One thought on “Autumn leaves

  1. While we’re enjoying the first blossoms and green buds of spring, you’re breezing into autumn! Though it shouldn’t seem strange since you’re south of the equator, somehow it seems odd.

I'd love to hear your views
