Last weekend the temperature dropped, the wind and rain came (and snow down south) and suddenly it was summer no more. My garden is now decorated with fallen leaves, as my fridge was with magnetic poetry. Somehow we ended up with both the Shakespeare and food editions of magnetic poetry — not sure we’d win too many prizes with the result, but it is SO much fun.

This post was written for the phoneography and non-SLR digital photo challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally. This week’s theme is macro, and you can see Sally’s photos and links to other contributors here.

  1. Your creativity shows. The collage draws me into its narrative and play with the magnets. I also have them, and they can stay for months in the same place. Then magically someone rearranges them and it is joyful. Well done, Su. Happy Photo Challenge,

    • I’m glad you had some time (and nice weather) to enjoy the park. Thursday was lovely here, but now it’s raining and it feels very gloomy. I have too many uninspiring things to do and not enough energy to get on with them. Procrastination is so not my friend! Have a great weekend.

    • Thank you Janet 🙂 It is interesting for me seeing all the wonderful photos and musings on the coming of spring in the northern hemisphere, when I’m watching my grape vine shed leaves and wondering if there will be enough warmth to ripen my remaining figs. I love autumn best of all seasons.
