Les Feuilles Mortes
Since we last saw it in August, the view from my office has changed...
This whole autumn business is quite a surprise, really. Not literally, of course - I do remember that the leaves change, the air cools, the light changes. Still, it's been more than a decade since that's been just a memory, and the reality of it is rather bracing. The whole time change thing has thrown me off rather more than I would have thought, too, the dark, early evenings unwelcome and uninviting.
Even so, there's no denying that the autumn palette is pretty devastating, on the right tree, and it gets ever harder not to simply sit and watch the leaves fall.
