We are getting to the stage in Autumn when there are more leaves on the ground than are left on the trees. In parks and gardens you can scuff your feet through those rustling heaps of leaves. On pavements and paths the leaves are slowly being pulped and mushed by our feet. Soon there will need to be the big annual clean-up.
Among all that detritus there are little gems of colour. One of the pleasures of Autumn is that the wind mixes up all those falling leaves from a variety of trees. If you are clever enough, which I’m not, you can stare at a yard square patch of ground and identify leaves from a range of trees that nature has chosen to rearrange.
And occasionally there are compositions created by this random re-distribution. As others have noted recently, these aren’t easy to find, but once in a while you find a little patch of colour that says ‘choose me’. So I chose this little patch.
