Kicking Autumn Leaves

I love the colours of Autumn.It is like a daily changing painting that uses many colours, that gradually change before they drop off.
I worked the weekend and the greatest fun was kicking my way through leaves that had been blown into a pile by the wind, on the way to work.
As you slide your feet through the crisp pile the leaves fly up like mini leaf fountains.
The sound and feel of wading through leaves is to go back in time to childhood.
I needed my sleep today. I still need to venture out for the garden clear up. When its pouring with rain, and the air is cold then staying indoors on the computer and reading flower catalogues seems more appealing.
The Black Panther Streptocarpus is nearly open, I will photograph that once I have some batterys for the camera. It is having a holiday untill I can get some!
As Autumn changes the leaves colour and the daylight hours lessen, so my blog posts seems to be further apart.
I dont know any one who posts every day. It will be interesting to see how close to 365 I am by New Years Eve, ie a post every day of the year. I hope people continue to enjoy them when they are published.

I love autumn leaves too, unfortuantly they are too wet to wade through here, and I once had visiting goldfinches...I rushed off and bought the black-niger seeds they are supposed to love and they never came back....the starlings scoffed the lot eventually!!

Hi Claire,I do not have any Starlings in the garden.I think I may have seen one once..they prefer hopping around on the roads outside, and along Westgate eating pizza, chips, and kebabs dropped on a friday and saturday night.
