While we have had a couple of wet and windy days this past week, on the whole the weather has continued to be bright and sunny. In typical (as I am coming to discover) Boston weather fashion, on Tuesday it was -1C (30F) for the school run in the morning, yesterday the temperature was in the mid-teens (low 60’s) and I didn’t need a jacket!
We have seen quite a change in the garden, particularly with the trees – and our battle with the leaves has commenced! Last Friday was very windy, so I ran out and took a couple of photos of the oak trees. I took the same photos today, and the wind has very much changed the feel of the garden – autumn is passing quickly.
The kids were happy to help daddy with the leaves this time… I suspect the novelty may wear off!
Taking a walk around the garden over the last week, it’s been about gold leaves and red berries. The flowering plants are dying back. Leaves continue to cover the ground (and will do for the next few weeks!).
Walking around town there are still splashes of vibrant reds and pretty pinks, but for me it was all about the golds and silvers, and gorgeous red berries, this week.
I wonder how much longer we’ll continue to have beautiful blue skies and sunshine. While I am quite looking forward to taking photos of striking, skeletal trees against grey skies, I’m not ready to wish the sun away just yet!
