Autumn approaches…but not quite yet!

Back here at home we fully expected autumn to be in full swing.  True there are some hints of that rich autumn colour to come but really it is unseasonably green. Tree cover is still thick and that is despite some recent strong winds. In places it does seem rather spring like….

Whilst that is all true I do have to be honest and say that ‘out in the open’ the colour of the light has lost its warmth, only where the sun catches red colours does it gleam….

One noticeable exception to my comments on the trees and their leaf cover is the Ash tree….all Ash in our immediate area have dropped their leaves.  I suppose it is more noticeable with Ash as when the leaves drop it is overnight and virtual instant…blink and they have gone….

Elsewhere the sun still struggles to more than just cast shadows…shadows that get longer with each day.  Autumn approaches but slowly.

    • There was a time, not that many years ago, when you could pretty well predicted the changes of seasons and each seasons unique happenings. Now every year and each season seems to have a very different happening and even different from the previous year. So I guess we can wonder what normal will ever be like 🙂

  1. We have a lot more ‘autumn’ and many trees are losing their leaves now. Some begin to show their naked branches… :D. I love walking through the fallen leaves and kick ‘m forward. Must be the Inner Child, I guess.
