Autumn






You can really tell it's autumn now (or Fall if you are in the US!). The colours of all the leaves are changing rapidly although so far not many leaves are actually falling yet. But I know from past years that as soon as one starts the rest also come down in rapid succession. I love birches, they are so slender and elegant and the yellow tones in these leaves are breathtaking! I love the fact that in summer they give a lovely dappled shade and in winter they look beautiful silhouetted against the sky.
The echinops flowers have turned brown and look sort of rusty. I actually like them better in this state than in their summer blues. There was a little bit of sun today, just enough to warm up the day enough to walk the dogs without a coat but I can feel that the end of coatless days is in sight!
