Cherry Tree in Autumn

I was going to post this as a Wordless Wednesday, but I got to thinking that my blog is supposed to be about how my writing life interconnects with all that I do and see.  I realised that I’ve been lazy about writing in my blog, relying so much on photos recently.  So I must post more words.

You may remember seeing a picture of the ornamental cherry tree in spring, when it was covered in blossom.  Now we are at the other end of the year and its leaves have changed to this wonderful rich orange colour.  Soon they will be leaving altogether; indeed there are many on the ground already, and hubby is bemoaning the fact that we’ll have to get out there with the leaf sucker and collect them up.  They fly into our neighbours’ garden too, so we feel we have to help collect them in their garden as well.

I hope you can see them well enough in the picture, which I took through window glass.  At the time I noticed it was a bit smeary and needs cleaning after our recent carpet laying exercise.  So that’s what I’m off to do now before it gets too dark this afternoon.

I see them very well in this photo and they are beautiful leaves. You so well captured the details and color.

Sometime our art changes from one genre to another, it is just the essence of being an artist and we have to go with the flow. I love both your photography and writing.
