Familiar Streets

On Saturday I was walking down streets I have walked down for years in all types of weather. What I enjoy most about this time of year is the beauty of the Fall trees.

I enjoy the blanket of leaves that fall on the ground and do not mind at all that they have not been swept up.

We have had many windy days and I am saddened to see that some trees are almost leafless.

And yet many trees are still ablaze with colour even though their branches are not full.

The blaze of colour mixed in with the green is a sight I enjoy seeing: so much so that I look up as I pass by.

Even though I walk these streets many times, each time I enjoy the sights before me.

Do you enjoy seeing the colour of Fall in your neighbourhood streets?

  1. Glorious colours, Colline. They transform the most ordinary place, don’t they? 🙂 I was walking again this morning but the camera battery was flat. Just as well- I have more photos than I know what to do with! Many thanks for joining in. 🙂


  2. Just yesterday my family and I walked some New Forest paths for these colours.. my daughter loved it very much especially when we picked up some chestnuts… memory from my childhood chestnut foraging… 😉


  3. Lovely photos. I too love the Fall colours and the changes we see from one day to the next. We live in the country and have the luxury of not having to rake or sweep our leaves. They make a colourful carpet and will either blow away on the wind or be covered by the snow!


  4. Such beautiful and bright colours Colline and stunning shots hon. I also love seeing the leaves on the ground and grass. Around here I keep a layer of them in the flower beds so they can turn into compost. 😀


  5. Beautiful pictures of the fallen leaves.
    The should not be swept up, they really give a natural ambience to the season
    and a pleasure to the eye, quite relaxing.
