Pictures of autumn , some ATCs and a card....

After the rain and the wind of the past few days, most of the autumn leaves have flattered from the trees, forming a wonderful, red and gold carpet of leaves, which is lovely to walk through, kicking them up again and again.... But sometimes rather dangerous, too. The leaves act as a camouflage for the *mines* planted there by some dogs. I'm not blaming the dogs, either, just their owners!
Still, I will be very sorry when the red-gold beauty is finally swept away, leaving behind a cold and grey November.
Took a few photos of my favourite trees, of the sun rising over the airport, and of the trees in front of my balcony. And I made my October ATCs, which are going out rather late this time. Shame on me, as it was my turn to choose the theme, which I did, just didn't get round to making them (hangs head in shame).


  1. Fabulous ATCs Val (mine were late too! Shame on me as I organise the swap!lol)
    Today it's damp and miserable here - typical November weather.

  2. Hi Suzie, glad I wasn't the only one!!

  3. Hi Val

    Listen to you two!!! I wasn't late, and I didn't chose the theme or organise the swap!!! Still, your ATCs are beautiful, so well worth the wait (and so was yours Sue!!!)

    When I started reading your description of the leaves and walking through them, my mind was torn between remembering having such a lovely time doing just that as a child, to being mindful these days of the doggy doo and then you mentioned it too!!! I did however have a lovely romp through some leaves this morning, but I was wearing my wellies so all was safe!!!

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Hugs - Carole xxx
