Autumn Leaves, Winchester Cathedral Yard, 2011
We have seen a lot of leaf fall in the past few days in Winchester. Recent strong winds and heavy rain have shaken the foliage down and many trees are now leafless, showing their delicacy and structure once again. It is all rather lovely, and gives us an excuse to get outside and get some exercise clearing away the debris. Many paths in the countryside have a good covering of colourful leaves too. The world is indeed mud luscious and puddle wonderful, and will probably stay that way until spring time.
