Yesterday was a glorious autumn day, so I had a wander around the yard and played with Mick’s camera. It has lots of bells and whistles and I still have quite a bit to learn. Mostly I think I will stick with my little point and shoot.
The dahlias are at their best at the moment, but as we had our first couple of frosts last week their days will be numbered for this season. I bought a few more bulbs in spring so we have a nice mix of colours now.
The Manchurian pear is just starting to turn.
As is the white cedar.
Remember when I found some green acorns on our oak tree back here. Well, they are all on the ground now. A second oak is a bit slower, as they are still hanging on the tree with green caps.
I played with the collage in Picasa. Zoom in to have a closer look at the wonderful colour at the moment.
I know the photos are too small to really see in this next two collages, but they remind me of a ticker tape quilt with all the colours.
Like I said, just playing.
