Autumn, half done

It’s been a long slow autumn.   Lots of the deciduous trees and shrubs have been very slow to turn this year;  most of the oaks in the neighbourhood are still entirely green.

But the pace of change is increasing, we’ve had a few frosts and some windy days, and there’s now as much autumn colour under our feet as above our heads.    Another couple of weeks and the trees will be bare, and it will be leaf mould time.
