Blessed as I am to now live in beautiful Sydney, by the sea and enjoy all our colours, I was amazed to revisit the colours of autumn in good ol' blighty. They took my breath away. During these sunny, crisp days I could smell the promise of winter in the air, all of nature seemed to be preparing itself. One last flourish before what was to be a harsh winter.

These migrating geese took us by surprise. I was not prepared and screamed out 'Duck!' to my Miss O, who thought that was the biggest joke of all time.
Learning to shuck your own corn ready to pop in the pot when we get home is real living.
