Maybe it's the clear blue skies and sunshine, maybe something in the sap, but Autumn seems to have put an an extra brilliant display this year.
Almost everywhere I've been - round about our housing estate, down in the city centre or driving to the supermarket - roads and pavements are edged with the most wonderful reds and yellows.
And, of course, with a phone in my pocket I haven't stopped taking photographs. They aren't such brilliant photos as many are taken from the car, and some have odd markings on them - sorry, that's the dirt on the front window but I think the brilliance of autumn's colours shines through it!
It just shows you don't need to go anywhere 'special' like planned gardens or arboretums - this beauty is sitting there right on your doorstep or daily commute just waiting to be noticed (just don't get distracted if you are the driver!)
