A Celebration of Autumn
This weeks selection of photos are a celebration of Autumn. The trees at the bottom of my garden are fading fast, the once green leaves have been through stages of orange and red and are no a pale brown and yellow. Apart from the ones that just refuse to change, even leaves can be stubborn sometimes. I took this photo because I could see a reflection of the moon. But it’s hard to see now. Isn’t it strange how a blue sky like this a couple of months ago, set behind a row of bright green trees would paint a much warmer picture.
This year we went back to Pokemon stencils for our pumpkins. I’ve already shown lots of pics of them but I thought Salandit deserved a second showing, maybe because it’s the photo that came out the best. The others looked just as impressive on our front doorstep on Halloween.
Finally, Autumn would not be complete without bonfire night and fireworks. We went to a friend’s house for a garden display last night and although we had a lovely evening I think the decision is made that we won’t be doing this again. I have never really been a fan of garden fireworks although I like big displays. Last night the cold was too much for me and the noises set of my startle reflex. The Little Man and Boo lasted for a couple of fireworks but really didn’t like the noise and ended up going inside. Star, surprised me by lasting a little longer but she was with a good friend so I guess that helped.
One thing all the kids really enjoyed though was the sparklers. I think we would have been better off buying a hundred packs of these and letting the kids run around with them. It probably would have been cheaper too!
