Entry for October 05, 2008 – Autumn

Posted by HelenEdith on October 5, 2008

I’ve been playing wind quintets with The Girls this morning at Sutton Valance School.

The weather was awful, so I didn’t bother to take my proper camera, but I did take a couple of pictures of the chapel on my phone, as the creeper on the walls has changed to its spectacular autumn colour.

The pictures are here: Photobucket: Sutton Valance Autumn 2008Oct05

Entry for November 07, 2007 – Autumn Colour

Posted by HelenEdith on November 7, 2007

We’ve got autumn colour! It’s been with us for a week now, and there’s no way of knowing how long it will last. It would have been good to take a day off and go up to Kew and catch the autumn foliage there, but it might not happen as work’s been rather busy, and by the time I manage to find a day I’m allowed to take off, either the weather will be wrong or the leaves will be all gone.

It’s been interesting watching the changes in our back garden. Stephen planted a passion flower along the back fence and it’s climbed into the pear tree. The leaves of the passion flower and the pear tree have been changing colour at different rates. I’ll have to check, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there are even still some flowers left on the passion flower. It does surprisingly well.

I went to the chirporactor for some maintenance on my back today, and there are an increasing number of leaves on the ground along the route I took. It doesn’t bode well for a day of autumn foliage photography next week, but if we don’t get wind and rain, who knows, maybe there will still be something to photograph.

Anyway, before we know it, there are going to be Christmas decorations to photograph… 🙂

Website update:Kew Garden pictures from October 14th, 2005

Posted by HelenEdith on July 20, 2007

I’ve made a bit of headway with my project to remove my images from Yahoo Photos.

Today I’ve uploaded about 100 pictures taken at the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew on October 14th, 2005.

They include pictures of cacti, waterlilies, orchids, other flowers, both indoors and out, autumn colour, some of the statuary around the gardens, and some of the glass installations by Dale Chihuly, which were being exhibited around the gardens in October, 2005.
