    A lovely sight but horrible underfoot as the rain turns the leaves to mush

      For that very reason I had to be very careful when walking down a very long flight of steps in Paris. Those were the ones that had made my knees all wobbly when I arrived at the bottom.

    I love Autumn, just from my chair, I can see across the road to Childwall woods, the colour display is quite spectacular. I even have my own display in the front garden, The Miniature Japanese Maple, (which isn’t quite so miniature), resplendent in it’s Autumnal foliage is a warm russet brown. I often see people stopping to admire it when passing.
    I agree with Jams about the mushy leaves which are deadly for me as I have to walk with a stick….. Needless to say, the local Council usually start to clear them when enough people complain to them…ie, moi and a few vigilant neighbours!
    I have enjoyed your tales of the trip to Paris Cherie, most interesting, as ever !


  3. I especially like the third photo. Really lovely.

    It is lovely in autumn when the sun comes out. I wish we had more days like this. Glad you had the chance to get out with your camera.

    You have seen Autumn in the sun, Cherie – lucky you. It just doesn’t seem to stop raining down here, draining all the colour out of the turning leaves

    Leaves are so beautiful when they fall to the ground. I remember, in my youth, collecting the most perfect maple leaves, drying them between books, and sending some to my European penpals with my Christmas cards. I probably thought that maple trees only grew in Canada.:-)

      I still have my scrapbooks of pressed leaves from when I was exploring the woodlands with my Dad. They also helped me with one of my Brownie badges :-)

      When I got married to Mr C, between my Mum, Dad and I we made all the invitations, order of services, the wedding cake and its decoration (my Mum takes sole credit for that one). The name cards on the table had individual pressed flowers on each one, no two were the same.

      Perhaps I should get them out and photograph them for my blog…

    I would love to see the name cards with the pressed flowers. When we lived in the Arctic, on Baffin Island, I collected the beautiful flowers I saw on the hills, during the 24-hour-sun season: arctic poppy, buttercup, aven, cotton, rhododendron, rampant willow…to prove that, although there were no trees, it wasn’t a barren land. It’s still all dried up in a scrapbook since 1965.

    I love Autumn, I love to walk the street and be with my feet in the layers of fallen leaves, I always have to kick piles of leaves. I used to do that as a kid too.
    Beautiful pictures, Love the bottom one.
