Remnants of Autumn

This Saturday, I decided to park the little red car and take a walk around the palace grounds.

There was only a remnant of autumn left.
A few shivering leaves were clinging with all their strength to the tree branches, as if by doing so they could slow down winter's arrival.

The lawn was a sea of color with leaves of every shade laying in many scattered piles.

As I walked, the sound of the crunch of dried leaves, under my feet mingled with the sweet singing of the birds and the busy chatter of the squirrls, as they scurried about shopping for their winter food.

I caught a glimpse of one of these grey furry creatures in a bare tree and he stopped his work just long enough to let me take a quick photo.

It is now only a matter of time that the white snow will be covering all this splendour of autumn.

Fall will be just a pleasant memory.

Goodbye Fall....Hello [but certainly NOT welcome] Winter!
