Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower
This week we have had the odd lovely autumnal day, interspaced with heavy rain and high winds.
On Monday we were treated to an eerie, yellow-grey sky, with a luminous orange sun. This was caused by the winds from hurricane Ophelia whipping up Saharan dust!
I also added one of my favourite autumn leaves from the garden.
I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers
This week Rose sketched the solstices and equinoxes
In my Calendar of Firsts, this week is all about the falling leaves!
