Leaves tinged by autumn
Still glued to tree after storm
Stubborn to the last
brown, dry, rooted on chalk ridge
where skylarks swoop low.
~Sweet chestnut cases~
Summer slides into Autumn:
Work for chimney sweeps
Pots plugged with Spring nest debris
Birds long gone ~ Autumn.
Leaves fallen, fruit gone;
just one golden crab apple
steals the limelight.
Vanessa atalanta (Red Admiral)
Passion flowers brave north wind
