Leaf fall

Wet weather seems to be well set in now.

There hasn’t been anything dramatic like a storm; just steady rain with frequent mist.

(I catch myself saying that the mist has come down, whereas in fact it comes up, rolling up from the valley like smoke.)

The first wet evening, after we’d taken the car out not long previously, I opened the front door and blinked.

Apart from on the car, there were leaves everywhere – all over the path, the flowerbeds, the gravel, and falling as I watched.

Some combination of cold and damp had caused the oak trees to suddenly shed the leaves which they’d held onto until then.
