I miss…

I miss the smells and sights of an autumn walk though the woods, especially after a shower. The colours of amber and gold blinking in the light as the sun alternately shines through the leaves and sparkles in water droplets hanging from bare twigs is a sight I’ve not seen here in Australia. The ubiquitous Eucalyptus trees dominate the landscape to the extent that there is little other ‘natural’ growth though of course avid gardeners do their bit by planting trees that have a little more character. There are times I could do with a soul refreshing walk through a European (or North American?) deciduous forest in the Autumn.

No idea what brought it to mind, I’m probably just a little ‘down in the mouth’… as the duck said while building her nest.
