Autumn Is Here

It’s been a while coming, but it’s here at last. However, The Turning of the Leaves doesn’t seem to be quite as vibrant or spectacular as last year. Maybe we didn’t quite get quite the right combination of sunshine, rain and frost; maybe it’s just that lately, it’s been rather overcast, although the sun does pop out from time to time, to give us shots such as this.

The Meteorological Office did promise us a ‘barbecue Autumn’ … presumably to make up for the ‘barbecue Summer’ they promised us, which didn’t really materialise. They did say, though, they got the temperatures right; it’s just that there was more rain than they expected.

Mr. Weather Man, I have news for you! Firstly, the barbecue got put away for the Winter two weeks ago, and secondly, after the Summer we just had, few people would believe you implicitly if you said it was going to get dark tonight.

In exactly a week’s time, I’m off to France, and hoping there’s some good colour around Carcassonne … and that the leaves stayed on!

Bus Stop


  1. A lot of people have been saying how fleeting Autumn has been this year. It’s a shame because it really is a season to be relished. Hope those leaves stay out in France for you!

  2. I’m sure you’ll get some sunshine in France – we’ve had some sunshine as well here, but there’s plenty of grey days in between

    • Wind and rain forecast for the weekend. Still, I’m not going to see the scenery (although it would have been a nice bonus!)

  3. We’re still hoping for one more barbecue!
