Greens and Browns

I was amazed at just how much greenery there still is out there - a lot of it was on the ground mind you. I love all the different shades of green and brown in this shot.

We are having such a mild spell of weather here just now - it's great and I want to be out in it all the time. As a result very little housework being done - naughty me!! I'll have to do it sooner or later though. I think I'll wait until later when the weather breaks - this nice spell won't last that much longer unfortunately.

Have a great week everybody.

Thankfully we are coming in to some more settled spring weather and the days are lengthening. Another great photo.

That is really lovely. We've had a mild November too. Makes me wonder if we're going to pay for it later. ;)

What a wonderful assortment of autumn colors Ellie. We are having some unusually mild weather here also, and I'll take that for as long as I can!

Isn't it wonderful to forgo the housework and go out and photograph such loveliness.

Yeah sooner or later we have to come back to reality but it's nice while it lasts.

Pat said...

Lovely autumn colors and textures!

Giga said...

Lubię też te kolory, ale niestety u nas ich już prawie nie ma. Coraz więcej drzew jest bez liści :-(. Pozdrawiam
( Dziękuję za miły komentarz u mnie )

Haha, we housewives can't stay away from houseworks.
Well, it is chilly finally. But we have fairy good sunshine. Not in your place?

Beautiful picture. I am not looking forward to the cold winter that is ahead. I would like to keep the milder weather that we have had this fall.

An intriguing shot. Glad you are enjoying the mild weather there in Scotland (?) is that right?

Here in Paradise, California we are preparing for the first snow of winter within the next few days. :)
