It’s time for another year of Festival of Leaves. This is the place to share your love for autumn and rain, for dark evenings and cups of tea, of books and all that you love during this time of the year.

~ Verena Cave


For those of us in the northern hemisphere it will be a long time until spring, but  if you have some autumn leaves to share, then please visit Verena’s site and join in. She’ll be very happy to see you.

(Macro Monday will be taking a break for a couple of months )

    1. Ah, I’m glad you mentioned that. We noticed the horse chestnuts in Essex didn’t look at all well – leaves all shrivelled up and brown and I wondered if they were sick. I hope this is not a serious one which endangers those trees as they are magnificent.


      1. All the trees in our nearby park are affected this way, and have been for quite a few years now. The grow healthily in the spring, look magnificent, produce normal conkers but then the leaves start going brown in August. It only seems to affect the leaves because every other aspect of their behaviour seems normal.

      2. Gosh they make an awful lot of damage don’t they? Even more than the cabbage white butterflies have done to my kale! There must be millions of these moths.
