Starting this blog post with a quote from F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, "Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall", would have been perfect. However, this autumn season in South Yorkshire (my first) isn't quite crisp, yet. Indeed it's mild and rainy, and there is certainly no reason to complain. Our house is surrounded by evergreens, mainly tall cypress trees, and it wasn't until yesterday that I really noticed the arrival of autumn when I spent some time at Walkers Nurseries garden centre. In the Chinese section of their gardens I vividly saw the orange and yellow shades, beautifully contrasted with the greens all around. I had almost forgotten how much I love this season. Almost! I decided to return to Walkers today and as I write this, I'm sitting at their café, enjoying a latte, and thinking about what to photograph next.
I will be back tomorrow with 'outdoor living'. Have a wonderful (autumn) day!
