Mist and fog patches, and occasional drizzle

The weather continues very autumnally (is that a word!?). The trees are changing colour swiftly and it is very mixed weather with lots of dampness and not a lot of sun lately. I was pottering around the garden the other day and spotted this pair of leaves – I love how the little one looks like a heart 🙂

And this is a quick iPhone photo I took from my bedroom window showing you the reason for all the leaves on the grass. We have a Tulip Tree on the left and a Beech tree on the right. It’s lovely to have this view to greet me in the morning. Further afield across the village I can also see the hillside changing colour and trees all around in other gardens and field edges changing too.

I have another day off today (it’s half-term) and maybe if the weather forecast is true I may venture out later – “However, through the day there should be some bright spells”…

Outbreaks of patchy rain or drizzle

The weather at the moment has not been so nice – not all that good for photography. I have very little time and then when I do, the weather is as above. So I nipped out when the rain and drizzle had stopped for a minute and got a few shots. It’s now raining again :-/ Ah well, at least I got out for a few minutes 🙂

Autumn Leaves

IMG_7699-2

I was too late to catch much of the sunlight still hanging around in the garden this evening but I stepped outside to see what remained. After a damp few days it was nice to see some sunshine. This patch of very autumnal leaves caught my eye. The Beech hasn’t completely turned, as you can see, and it’s still mainly green, but there are patches of golden brown leaves all a round, each growing larger by the day. As these caught the sun I thought what a nice picture it would make. So here we are.
