Autumn with a Soft Vengence

Well… it’s been threatening for weeks and it has eventually arrived – Autumn!

Absolutely lovely time of year. Just before the winds clear all the trees of their fading leaves. Funny how the colours can look so vibrant even though the skies are a bit on the grey side.

The first strong wind will wipe the branches virtually clear but for now only the most tired make the drop. I walked along a busy road and there was a short break in the traffic. A shower of mottled yellow leaves took the opportunity to float to the ground while the going was good. With the traffic missing, for a moment, and the leaves drifting down it was the calmest and most peaceful I’ve seen that road in twenty years. Nature always finds a way to triumph.

Let’s hope for a long, mild Autumn.
