The Colours of Autumn

"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."

— Elizabeth Lawrence

I may not have had a seat but the other morning I took a lovely and well needed solo walk through one of our local parks. The swings were still and the slides free from the excited screams of children. The football pitches were bereft of players. It was so peaceful and picturesque , like autumn was making a show just for me.

As I pootled along I was amazed by the Fungi which had popped up. I’ve not seen bunches like this before, naturally I just had to take some pics, and yes I did get the odd funny look sat infront of Fungi taking photos.

There was the odd solo little guy.

Between patches of Fungi there was so much colour, not the bright tones we’ve seen over the spring and summer but lovely muted tones which looked perfect in the low autumn sunlight.

The roses are simply stunning at the moment.

Even the rose petals which have dropped to the ground look pretty against the dark soil.

I was chuffed to bits to see some lovely Poppy flowers hanging in there, so delicate remarkably hardy.

It’s turning out to be a rather lovely transition to Autumn, so long as the rain doesn’t get too carried away I shall hopefully get working on preparing our garden for Spring.
