I hate autumn!
It's true I used to! Even as recently as last year, I was writing on the blog about how it reminded me of death. Well, now I can't imagine ever feeling like that. Every day I go out wondering what colourful surprises are in store. I took a photo of the lovely ground cover on my garage roof this time last year for the blog, and this year I thought it would be interesting to see the transition from green to reds and oranges. Above is how it looked just as the first signs of change appeared.
Funnily enough, it seems to have been mainly overcast whenever I took the photos. I think this stage, where the greens and oranges mix, is my favourite.
Again a cloudy day. When I downloaded the photos the colours lost so much of their intensity - in reality they seemed to glow.
And looking at the colours next door against our wisteria (which has gone yellow since I took the photo).
Out walking yesterday I saw these beautiful colours.
I thought it was about time for more shutters!
We saw a blue tit on the pavement looking a bit stunned so Mark popped it under a hedge where hopefully it has recovered.
