The Best of Autumn

P1120867

So, autumn is sliding inevitably into winter. There are still leaves on the trees that I can see from my window as I type, the now-bare trees at the edges of the garden have protected the trees in the middle, but a few more strong winds and they’ll all be left standing with just their bark on a carpet of un-mown grass and fallen leaves. The leaves on the road don’t get much of a chance, they’re scarcely left a day before the Swiss de-clutter brigade is out to tidy them away. Heaven knows where they take them.

We had one shower of snow about a month ago but the city is fairly protected in a valley, and it didn’t settle. It’s only a matter of time, though, before the Helvetian winter gets going properly. So here are some of my favourite pictures from the last couple of months.
