Festival of Leaves: Falling Leaves


falling leaves
hide the path
so quietly

  1. Love that haiku and the picture, Jude. It makes me really miss the fall in Virginia. All we have here in Nanning now is rain, rain, rain. At least, thank goodness, we’re getting cooler temperatures. 🙂


    1. Seems to be getting hotter here! I shall be burned to a crisp before I leave at this rate! Think I will be visiting a few galleries and museums next week 🙂


  2. Are you homesick for winter?? You have the delight of grandson and family to compensate, and a whole new climate to get used to. Have you scheduled autumn leaves for the whole of your absence? They look a bit forlorn in this assemblage. Metaphor?


    1. I do find the heat here hard to get used to! I get so hot and sticky that it is unpleasant to walk around, and I love exploring. I don’t remember Sydney being so sticky! But I do not miss the start of winter. I hate winter unless it is very cold and dry, but it is usually very grey and wet.

      I have scheduled some leaves over the next month. This shot was taken when I was babysitting in September and went to a NT garden near my Daughter’s house. The leaves were on a marble seat, and I just added a few seed pods to add interest. I love the colour.
