Cycle

"Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness..." Leaving my place of punishment where I am ploughing through uninspiring exercise books and homework projects on a bright October Sunday afternoon, I ventured up our garden to glimpse some of the vividness of another year dying... another cycle almost done... This is what I found:-

Holly berries ripening two months before Christmas.

Apples hanging like nature's baubles from a sky blue ceiling.
My favourite gnarled trunk. The scars run deep.

Leaves aflame like Mediterranean fire fish drying on lines.

  3. We have lived here in my parents upstairs for 6 years now. Less than a month ago, my husband finally got our living room window open. This morning I have windows open all over. Nice very autumn breezes are coming through the house.
    My cats are quite invigorated.

  5. A sunny autumn day has a magic all of its own. We deserve it after the dismal summer. Now get back to the marking!

  7. Those leaves are just gorgeous.

    YP, I've tagged you for a music meme. Normally I wouldn't pester you with such things, but this one I think you'll enjoy.
