The last of the autumn leaves...

The last of the autumn leaves are floating through the air. Bright, burning bursts of flame against the cool blue and grey skies. Each gently falls towards the earth to join the collection of others forming a delicate carpet across the lawn. Nature is tucking itself in for the cold winter ahead. Rich amber and copper intertwined with scarlet - one final thrust of colour, and a spectacular show at that. Our walk through the park today reminded me of how beautiful and fleeting the autumn months are, and to take advantage of every opportunity to be outside enjoying the last of the autumn colours in the afternoon sun.

Beautiful photographs. I love the colours of autumn - walking home from the bus is so lovely when there are red and yellow leaves falling off of the trees and blowing past.

So glad you're all enjoying the autumn as much as I've been!
Hope you're having a wonderful week so far.

Beautiful writing, followed by beautiful images -- such a wonderful time of year, to observe and celebrate the changes in nature. Love that little glass vase filled with rich colored leaves, too -- I might have to try that somewhere :)
