Autumns Views Challenge week 5

Hi everyone, hope you are having a good week.  I'm now on holiday for the rest of the week which is fab!

Here is the latest pic for the autumn challenge

That horizontal branch in the foreground has only a few leaves left, and those still clinging on have gone really brown.

The weather was really misty yesterday when I took the picture, it has barely got light all day since Monday, and much the same this morning.  But I quite like it, suits the season!

A couple more compare and contrast pictures:

I took a picture of this lovely grand tree last week

This is how it looked yesterday:

What a difference a week has made!  The heavy, misty weather we have had this week has seen the leaves fall straight from the trees - the weight of the moisture has just brought them tumbling down in heaps.  Usually it would be high winds that take the leaves, and they would be scattered around more, rather than landing straight underneath the trees. 

Well, must away - I have a few errands to run so had better get on!

Have a great day,



  1. Enjoy your 'rest of the week' holiday!!

  2. Happy holiday Helen,lovely piccies and love the leaf heart in your header,Xxxx

  3. My cherry tree has no leaves left on it now! Autumn now has its grip on us! Ada :)

  4. What a difference in a week with the tree. Some lovely colours around at the mo! x

  5. Oh my goodness, I won't recognise my home town when I return.... I missed out on last weeks photo, as I was so ill/busy :(
    Have a super time off, you certainly deserve it :)
    See you soon, Sue Xxx

  6. Hooray for you getting some time off and the pictures are beautiful.

  7. Helen, the pattern for the flower for the scarf is based on a Japanese Flower crochet pattern. I did a tutorial on my blog many moos ago called Flower How to number 2, maybe that would help. For the scarf I only make 8 petals and attach two, top and bottom, with two out on eiter side.
    Let me know if you need help.

  8. Thank you for your visit and comment. Yes, that over the top Halloween decorating was a very far distance from my Virginia childhood Halloweens, when we just carved up a jack o'lantern, put a candle inside, and put the delightful little light out on the front steps to greet trick or treaters.

    I've enjoyed taking a look at your recent posts.

  9. Our trees are looking windblown too.. it's been an odd fall here. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
