Autumn Leaves In Cardiff

Back in Cardiff for a couple of days to get some more writing done, I took a break to have a cup of tea in the garden. All the signs that summer is now over have now shown themselves: the start of undergraduate lectures (Monday); the Autumnal Equinox (Tuesday); the end of the County Championship on Friday; and so on.

Here in Cardiff the weather is still warm, but the leaves are turning brown and starting to fall. Conkers too. And, most spectacularly, the Virginia Creeper growing at the back of my house has turned blood red. It does look pretty, but I’m sure it’s not good for the gutters or the chimney stack above..
