Saturday Snapshots

Autumn in the garden:

Jap Maple Nov 2013 P1090302

The leaves are falling from some of the trees now, but our little Japanese Maple is still bearing its flame-coloured leaves.

Finally, here’s D up a ladder doing repairs to the roof – I had to watch because falling leaves are one thing …

  1. What a beautiful little Maple tree. First time I see the Japanese Maple. Your Autumn is a fantasy for me… we’re having a snow storm right now. But my Snapshot reminds me of better days. 😉


  2. Maples are one of my favourite autumn trees and that one is a real beauty. It’s not cold enough in Sydney to get the full effect of autumn – I miss it.


  3. Oh, I love this time of year, but I suspect husbands don’t. My husband was on the ladder this week also, cleaning out rain gutters and making sure the flashing was tight around the chimney before the snow falls …


  4. Most of our leaves are gone off the trees and have since been blown to parts unknown. I do not let..allow..or suggest my husband get on a ladder. Glad to see D wears a hard hat.


  5. My Japanese Maples in Fife are losing their leaves now but the recent high winds have helped with that. Gorgeous photos.


  6. Lovely pictures. Heidi looks like her tail plus a bit more were dipped into a bottle of ink. She’s such a pretty cat. My husband is unable to climb a ladder now, so now I’m wondering who is going to get the leaves out of our gutters. Not me, that’s for sure!
