Walking Back From My Mechanics

…still very autumnal in the middle of winter….

…still no real frost 1 day before the shortest day…

…nice, but we’re all stuffed aren’t we?…..

The Root Of The Problem Is The Roots

…autumnal colours are aglow in the valley…. IMG_4732   …but leaves aren’t the only thing falling…. …I was staring out the window admiring a deluge of swirling orange, yellow & brown leaves when I noticed traffic backing up outside the shop…. IMG_4759   …one of two “beautification” trees in the ‘hood came down in the same big equinoctial gust that the leaves were enjoying… …I missed getting a shot of it sprawled across the road because a customer (customers!…with their needs & wants…always getting in the way of “art”!) came in as I was rushing out with my camera… IMG_4760   …it would seem that planting trees in confined, concrete edged, tar-seal surrounded flower beds is not great for their root development…   IMG_4761   IMG_4762   …snap!

Autumn On The Way

…all getting a little chillier down here in the south pacific..
