The crispy crackling of Autumn leaves underfoot is a simple pleasure we're enjoying these days. The boys seek out generous piles of them, as they know the greater the volume, the louder the CRUCNH. So they make a b line for front fences or side walls or large deciduous trees. Any spot where the wind has provided an opportunity for the accumulation of a crunchy mass. It is a real joy to witness my boys playing the way I used to as a child... and of course, most times I join in the fun.
These beautiful trees provide such tremendous relief and protection from the harsh Summer sun. They line the pathway to one of our favourite local parks and have brilliant glossy green leaves during the warmer months. Then the cold descends. And now, they're bright and golden in colour and look spectacular against a powder blue sky. The branches are sparse, as leaves have tumbled freely downwards for many weeks. But I managed to capture a couple of rogue limbs, who rebelled and held onto their foliage that little bit longer.
Linking up with Faith Hope & a whole lotta Love for 'Snap It' and today's topic of: Yellow.
