God, but this endless rain is grim, isn’t it? I’ve been rained in for the past three days; I really need to invest in some proper waterproof clothing and shoes this year. (A lament that I make every November and then fail to act on in any way. This year, surely, will be the year I purchase some proper leather boots that don’t let the rain in, so I don’t need to get my wellies out every time it drizzles and then end up with blisters from walking too far in them…)
Apart from moaning about the wet weather, I’ve been spending lots of time recently snapping photos for my sister’s Instagram feed. Regulars will probably remember that my youngest sister has a really beautiful Letterpress stationery company, called Wolf & Ink, where she designs and hand prints loads of beautiful things.
I’m giving her a hand on promoting all of her Christmas cards this year (so, firstly, go and visit! Wolf & Ink Christmas cards) and I’ve got a fabulous box of her work that I delve into and grab something to photograph most days.
Yesterday, after dropping the sprogs off at nursery, I took walk to all the good Autumn foliage trees of the neighbourhood and helped myself to a few leaves to put together a rather nice collage (if I do say so myself, ha ha).
But I think my macro lens and plants is turning into a bit of an addiction for me, because I couldn’t resist grabbing my camera and taking a few close up shots as well. Just because.
So, you lucky things, here they are! Glorious Autumnal leaves in wonderful colours.
In other news, I really do have every intention of writing about something that’s not just gardens / gardening / visiting gardens / garden design / photographing gardens sometime soon. Those who started following me when I was purely a crafts blog are probably heartily sick of all this gardening chat (or have stopped following, of course, in which case I suppose I needn’t worry…)
The combo of a big deadline for my garden design course in a few weeks, along with these bits and pieces I’m doing for my sister has rather put paid to my Thursday blogging time that I was enjoying earlier in the Autumn. But I’ll be back in force before Christmas, I promise, with a range of different articles, just as soon as I have time to write up and photograph all of the trillions of ideas percolating in my brain.
‘Til then, I’m afraid you’re probably going to have to put up with a few more photos of wet trees…

Lovely photos, autumn is so colorful!
You could blog on about anything and I will keep reading. I just love the look of your blog and your style of writing and feel I’m checking in on an old friend.
Aww, thanks Cheryl, what a lovely comment. xxx
The leaf colours this year have been the best in years. Keep on snapping while you can!
It’s your blog, write about what you like! Love the pictures of leaves I could never tire of them. I am with you on the rain, it’s pants, not sure it’s going to stop any time soon…….

Loved this post, I never tire of picking up autumn treasures like these! I’ll be popping over to check out the stationary, sounds lovely! Let’s hope we are turning a corner in this weather soon, quite sick of it already! Katie
