Autumn leaves

October is really kicking in-it's much colder here-the wood stoves are burning, the garden is dying back and the spiders have been busy. They have covered the yew trees in web, weaving it densely, creating a wrapped effect- perfect for the spooky season.

Autumnal walks are so nice, don't you think? I love the leaf litter at the side of the road and the burnished hedges and the low lake- it's water hasn't risen much yet but in winter, after the rain, the level will rise and we won't be able to walk quite so far around the edges. I like this. I like that although the landscape in which we live doesn't change in any dramatic way, the details, the smaller picture does- each season there is a subtle difference, there to be noticed if you look.
