One of my favourite seasons - maybe because I was an Autumn baby!!    But Carmi has chosen Autumn as the Thematic Photo for this week.

As I came down these steps this morning, I felt they had a real autumnal feel.   Pity the sun wasn't out!

This was taken a year or two ago at Tittesworth Reservoir in Staffordshire.   Lovely place to have a sit-down on the bench and admire the gorgeous colours!

And this is a Chinese Rowan Tree in our back garden.   I found it as a wee seedling among some stones, and thinking it was from our ordinary Rowan tree, decided to grow it on.   We realised it wasn't an ordinary Rowan and have decided on it being a Chinese Rowan, kindly brought to us by courtesy of a bird!   I suppose it must be about 10 or 12 years old now, and is really spectacular in the Autumn.   The birds don't eat the berries until a bit later, though they will strip the tree eventually, having performed some very acrobatic feats to get at the hanging berries.

Go to Carmi's blog to see what others have posted, and maybe post yours?

These are lovely, and capture very well the brilliant colors and the calm of autumn.

I love the Chinese Rowan tree and I think I would spend a lot of time watching the birds feed on the berries! Great pics Gilly!

The cool weather (but still some sun), the bugs knocked down, everything is good about fall.

Good fireplace weather, too!

Groan! I shall have to get my leaf blower/vacuum out. You shots have reminded me of the chore.
