Autumnal scenes

Autumn has been spectacular this year. 
It has highlighted what I already knew... that it's my favourite season. 
Maybe it's the fact that summer very often is a disappointment here in Bonnie Scotland, so when the temperature rises to 15 degrees (in October!) I'm right there to appreciate it as much as I can.
The photo above was taken whilst on a dog walk.
Who wouldn't love nature's palette?
Everywhere you look there's something to catch the eye.
Berry's, leaves, sunsets and sunrises to name but a few. 
This Canna Lily which I planted into a large pot along with fuschias, ivy and lobelia (which is hidden under all that foliage) hasn't flowered this year, but I'm not too sad about that because just look at the colour of those leaves.
I just have to try to save it from frost and the plummeting temperatures over night with our clear skies. 
I'm thinking about wrapping it with bubble wrap, but if anyone has any tips... I'm all ears!
The floating leaves caught my attention the other day on another dog walk.
The windy conditions caused them to float and congregate at one end of the lake.
There's nothing better than when a chore becomes fun don't you think?
Here's my son initially helping me to collect some of the fallen leaves from the trees in our garden... but as often happens... things took a turn for to the fun side with a game of hide and seek.
Muffin had to find him when he had buried himself in the leaves. 
She's never played this game before so it was fun to see her reaction.
You may have to look closely to find Muffin... she was nearly buried too.

And finally just when I thought Halloween is over... I got a big scare this afternoon, but thankfully it turned into delight very quickly.
The fog which has been visiting most of the country (mainly further down south) arrived here today.
I looked out of the window to check on the density of the fog this afternoon, when I suddenly noticed white shapes moving in the adjacent field.
Straining my eyes and doing extremely excessive blinks with my eyes were on stalks, I realised that the farmer had brought sheep into the field.
I'm delighted and have wanted the sheep to come nearer to the house since we returned from Australia (they used to be right up to our garden when we last lived here... which was so much fun when the lambs appeared)
I'm not sure what Muffin will make of them... she's never been close to one before.
In fact I don't think she's even seen one.
This'll be fun!
I couldn't take a photo because it's a pea souper out there now, but you know me... I won't be able to resist!

I'm linking to My World Tuesday today.

I hope you are having fun this week and enjoying autumn too.
Happy Autumn to you all.
