Quickly rushing home from the rain. Nothing much to see today. Only the rather hypnotic red reflection of the traffic light on the wet street.

Raindrops and yellow leaves kept falling down today. Full autumn now!This solitary leaf was waiting for me on the roof of the car. This is it now, for real. Chilly, windy and wet!

Today’s constant drizzle offered much needed moisture for all the plants, and a quiet lull in our busy summer activities for us holiday makers. There is nothing like the smell outside after the rain!

Living on the coast, you’ve got to be prepared for quickly changing weather. This morning it was plus degrees, and pouring with rain. Snow on the conifer bush in front of our house had melted into droplets of water, which turned out quite strange in this picture. They almost look solid!

I’ve been helping my daughter pack today – she’ll go back to her university in Scotland tomorrow. I will also go back to school. A lovely holiday is over. Time for good-byes yet again. An old quote from an old favourite film (Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner) comes to mind:

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain…


#293 raindrops keep falling on my head

Tried to find some beauty on a grey, dreary October day, and sure enough, there were lovely raindrops on every leaf and branch. I just couldn’t leave my umbrella for too long!

I don’t mind rainy autumn days actually. It is nice and cosy to light candles , and just be in the warmth of your home. Sometimes darkness provides a good protective shield against the outside world, and your own reduced existence gives comfort and strength.
