Leaf Fall

aleaves

This year’s bright leaves fall over the curled and colour-leeched leaves of former years, on the path that I take up above the river. Up here the rowans and the wild cherries will soon have their brilliant autumn colouring. The geese are still massed on the river, Canada geees and greylag, intermingled with the ducks and swans.  I don’t know what the salmon fishermen make of them, as they are very close to the rowing boats near the weir.

    • Thank you for your comment, John. Yes, bitter sweet – however, this September has been fine here in the Borders, so the turning of the leaves and then their falling seems surprising, it has happened so fast. Maybe the fine sunsets make up for the swift disappearance of the flowers.
