It’s cooling down and the first trees to start changing colour here are the Horse Chestnuts – and they are. Just as we are over the Christmas rush followed by the return to school and the starting up of various clubs and organizations for the new year, there are intimations of Autumn on her way! Hopefully we will have a hot February/March with beautiful still days and cooler evenings, but who can tell.
Here is the postcard I collected from my letterbox today. It has found its way over from The US and comes from Melissa Cahn in Lords Valley – thanks Melissa. I love the beetles and all the different textures you used. I am quite fond of armoured creepy crawlies, I had a visit from a little jumping spider this morning as I was working on the laptop in the kitchen. He progressed across the table in little runs and leaps, as if he was feeling rather joyful! He wasn’t quite so relaxed when he noticed I was looking at him, but eventually carried on and disappeared hastily. They are small enough to be quite cute and I like their jaunty appearance.
This might be upside down, but it seems more 3-dimensional this way up to me, I think it is the curvy net on the bottom right hand corner that does that.
