More Walks Through Autumn

 

Autumn has been so beautiful this year, partly due to sunny days
which has allowed the beautiful leaves to linger.
I love this red maple in my neighbourhood.

One late afternoon, I took my little pumpkins on a walk and 
put them on the fallen leaves by the roots of a very big Beech Tree.

Beech tree leaves turn the most lovely colours in the autumn.

One of the benches down at the Mon Repos Park in Lausanne
before the gardeners clear away all the fallen leaves.

Let's have some blue sky and golden Tulip Tree leaves illuminated by the sunshine!

American Oak Leaves generous in size and pleasing in shape and colour

They look as lovely on the ground after the rain.

The colourful flowerbeds with chysanthemums are just starting to open.

The dark red ones are lovely too

But these are my favourites nestled in the fallen leaves.

The big Ginkgo Tree is turning golden

More fallen leaves catching the light

Another shot of the Tulip Tree with the leaves taking on a burnished look.

I love all the shapes and different shades of the Tulip Tree leaves as they mature.

Newly planted urns in the park. The flowers are only beginning to open.

Before we leave, let's walk down the alley of tall Beech Trees.
There will be more autumn colours to come,
but for today, I've enjoyed walking here with you!

  3. I think this is probably one of the prettiest autumns we have had and your beautiful photos certainly prove that, Sandra! Love your images and the way you photographed your sweet crocheted pumpkins among the leaves. I hope November is going well for you--amazing that we are nearing the end of this unforgettable year. Take good care now!

    1. You're right, Carol. I also think that this is one of the most lovely autumns we've had. I think that the warmer weather has helped all the beautiful leaves last longer. Yes, what a year! Thank you for coming in to say hello!

  4. The autumn colors in Switzerland are breathtaking! It must have been a lovely walk. I love how you captured them from far away to up close. I love your little pumpkins amongst the leaves and roots! Wind and rain brought down most of our pretty leaves before they could really be enjoyed!

    1. We were blessed this year with a long-lasting autumn and wonderful colours, mostly due to a mild month of October and November. Now it has turned colder and the lastt leaves are starting to fall very fast.

  5. I just read and enjoyed your last three posts - thank you for sharing the beauty of autumn color! Trees are now mostly bare in Wisconsin, so it was a real treat to see your photos. I think we share the same taste in chrysanthemums. :)

    I'm sorry to hear that Covid has risen so sharply there - it's very bad indeed here. Stay safe, Sandra!

    1. Thank you for coming in to read my latest posts, Sue! We've been having a marvellous autumn, thanks to warm weather, but now things are turning colder!

      We have actually managed to halve our numbers of Covid thanks to partial, and sometimes full, shutdowns. My county only had a partiald shut down of restaurants and bars, etc, but it was enough to make a big difference in the space of two weeks.
