Ancient parchment?

Although it might  resemble a fragment of velum from a discovered ancient document it is actually a section of a fallen autumn leaf!  I was intrigued by the pattern of the markings, the colours and the textures.

Autumn gains pace

The preliminaries of Autumn are now over.  The clocks have changed, resulting in a closing in of the end of the day, the stronger winds have removed most of the leaves from the trees and now just a  few colourful stragglers remain.

Today in the garden

In the flower border the last surviving hydrangea flower head blooms defiantly as its leaves acknowledge the rapid approach of mid-autumn.


A few feet away, in the fish pond, a solitary leaf drifts in limbo just beneath the surface, uncertain where to go, whether to sink or whether to float.

Autumn leaves

Recent strong gusts of wind have accelerated the fall of leaves.  The pattern below has been created from images of fallen leaves photographed in the garden this morning.
