Autumn comes … autumn leaves

Autumn is a second spring, when every leaf’s a flower.  Albert Camus

This is my second  – or is it third? – Warsaw autumn. It doesn’t arrive with the calendar autumn and it seems to me to arrive slowly.

I begin to track the leaf change in early October in Park Morskie Oko

October 4th

The predominant colour is yellow with hints of orange and pink and today it shows against a gusty blue sky. There is a brief flare of startling red in the cotoneaster leaves and berries around one of the many memorial stones.

    The photos of fallen leaves are very pretty. The ones with the mauve leaves are very unusual.

    Lovely fallen leaf shots, and I like that you had a person in one shot of a path through the trees…..

    I’ll have to get my eye attuned to Autumn Meg. Just stopped for something to eat before we head to the airport. Dreading the next week but there will be some lovely family moments too. Hugs darlin xxx

    Autumn leaf colours don’t really happen until after a cold spell. So far it has been quite mild here. Leafs are simply turning brown and dropping down.

    Our most common autumn colour is yellow from our indigenous trees as well. To see bolder shades we rely on parks and gardens and the generosity of a couple of generations ago. I’m looking forward to a crisp, dry November day out to find some autumn!

    I can almost smell these leaves, Megs. Mmm. Our linden walk is now pale gold underfoot, though the leaves on the trees are more green than brown. The best colours so far are our native field maples – lots of love deep reds, and the horse chestnuts are doing some good shades of crunchy rust on gold. But then it’s still warmish here 10 – 14 degrees. Things are still growing up at the allotment including late strawberries!
