Autumn breezes in on a chill wind, shivering trees whisper
Chameleon leaves colour, fall in seasonal surrender
Bare bones branches hold fast, await in time winter’s frosty veil
For this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday Linda wants us to use a word that contains ‘cam’, and of course the first thing my brain thought of was ‘camera’ – so here are a few images of my autumn garden in the rain, taken on my camera this morning before I went out to work… 🙂
As well as beuatiful autumnal colours my November garden also brings the promise of new life for next year 🙂
We’ve had such a lot of miserable grey clouds and heavy rain this wet and windy autumn, but recently I caught this tree all golden against a blue sky in a rare moment of sunshine walking home from the supermarket – camera phones are just great for capturing impromptu moments like this 🙂
Autumn leaves falling artfully on my garden bench this afternoon 🙂
We’ve had a lot of wind and rain recently, so many of our autumn leaves are already on the ground long before having a real chance to create a spectacular show of colour this year, although these little yellow mushrooms enjoying the saturated grass are happy to join in 🙂

A chronological line up of pics showing a day in the life of two types of autumn fruits progressing from plant to plate 🙂
The fruit on mum and dad’s plum tree is ripening nicely just now, as are the brambles growing along the side of the road by the house. So the other day my husband picked some of both and I made them into one big fruit crumble.
After cooking in the oven I could see the fruit had been far juicier than I had anticipated so the end result didn’t look the best with all the juice soaking right up through the sugary cinnamony crumble topping but oh, the smell – and the taste – was absolutely delicious.
We had it hot with custard on the first day, then cold with vanilla ice cream the next… yum! 🙂
Crocus? In September? In Scotland? Yep! 🙂
After yesterday’s blustery winds and last night’s really heavy rain, instead of the gentle spiralling fall of dry and crispy puffed-up autumn leaves to kick and crunch through, we’ve been left today with a soggy-bottomed slippy leaf mulch sticking to the pavements and jammed into gutters and drains – not so pretty to photograph, but I tried anyway 🙂
