My camera has been away to be mended. The sun shone while it was away. As soon as it's come back, the light goes and the rain pours down as if heaven is emptying its bath water.
|These blackberry leaves are pretty tatty and may fall.|
But they may not.

Then there was a moment, not a long moment, but a moment long enough to dash out and dash back before it began to drizzle; a slow, steady shower from the gods. If it were spring, it would be welcome. Sliding through the mud, I wished my camera had come back yesterday. Trying to focus on sodden seeds, sodden everything, it seemed as if nature itself had gone out of focus, I thought 'no post here!'.
|From the sky, you might think this was taken early in the day or in the evening.|
No. Twenty past ten in the morning.
(It's very annoying.
I know I've taken a picture of this view before but can't find it.
When I do - I'll give the link.)
But there it is. Autumn.
I nearly said it's now 'winter' because these outlines will stay the same right through to spring - petrified reminders of last summer. But the air is warm. It's still autumn.
Now my camera's back, it can snow if it likes for all's right with my world - even if it is raining.
And the view we are following?
Pretty murky too.

scroll down the post for the beginning of October.
Not a lot has changed so I've drawn back to give a wider view.
That's autumn for you!
