‘Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile,’

William Cullen Bryant

After enduring yesterday’s downpours and solid grey skies we have been rewarded…

…blue skies, mist, glistening fields, dew like diamond droplets…

‘Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower,’

Albert Camus

Glorious waterfalls of colour…

…jewel-like berries…

Swallows and swifts have gone, leaving the fields to the crows, occasional magpie and flapping pigeons…the gentle river meandering, only disturbed by the occasional narrow boat creating ripples that set the ducks quacking in indignation…

‘That time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale,’

Lauren DeStefano
