It seemed to take a long time for the leaves to turn from the bright emerald green to the burnt colours of Autumn. However, in the last week or so, the change has been marked with not only the leaves changing colour but also falling from the boughs that bear them. Even in the last few days when not a puff of wind could be felt, the leaves have slowly parachuted their way down to the floor one by one, as in the park below.
The onset of winter seems to be hastening the fall, as today the leaves were descending like snowflakes, despite the air remaining still. It was quite magical, and the paths have gone from greys and muddy browns to crunchy copper walkways. So go out, enjoy the scene, feel like a kid and kick your feet in the leafy flakes.
Each season has something for us all to enjoy.
