The best of autumn

Picture 1535 

 As I'm typing this, I keep looking across to see the wispy snowflakes blowing in all directions with even talk of a blizzard. I should really show you photos of that but Rachel sent out a heartfelt plea to finally (ahem!) see my photos of Kew Gardens which I visited back in November. Somehow I'm also more in the mood for sunshine and autumn colours than ice and snow. So that will have to wait a little longer, as will Vienna but I'm working on it. In the meantime, stay warm and have a lovely weekend.

  3. Automne est une saison magnifique pour la photo ! Voir magique. ;-)
    Maintenant nous sommes en hiver et la neige est là féerique ce dimanche matin en région parisienne. La ville est endormie aucun bruit tout est blanc, seulement pour quelques heures !

  5. @Rosa - Thanks, I'm glad you also love autumn.
    @Sylvia - Wow, sounds like it's pretty cold where you are. I can't really complain with -5. It's true that autumn seems like years ago and yet these pictures were taken in November. Now it's difficult to imagine all the snow melting and making way for spring.
    @Alice - Paris sous la neige - quel rêve, même si je regrette que les cimetières et quelques endroits dans les parcs soient fermés. J'espère que tu en feras de belles photos pour nous.
    @Suman - Thanks a lot, it's lovely to hear that.

  6. Absolutely wonderful, you have captured Kew. I was probably conceived in my parents house right next to Kew in December 1971. They then moved to southampton where I was born. I particularly like the picture of the woman on the bench, probably because i have spent hours on such a bench. I took my little boy to Kew for the first time this christmas - he was delighted, but mostly by the extraordinary kids adventure park. Anyway such rambling, thank you for these pictures and I'd just like to note that Kew would be the perfect place for us to to meet one day. x

  7. The light and contrast in your second image is especially pretty. I know I'd love your snowflakes too. I hope you are warm and happy this week, Emily.

  9. Always loved pictures with back light.
    Your second picture is too good (and so are the others)

  10. @Rachel - Wow, I can't believe you were conceived by Kew Gardens - how nice. This was only my second ever visit to Kew and I wonder what took me so long to return. I'm glad you took your little boy there because it's a place to go all your life and I'm sure he'll have wonderful memories. I'm already dreaming of getting back there - probably I'll miss the bluebells and orchids but a spring day out would be heaven. I like the idea of meeting you there one day, perhaps by that bench.
    @Denise - Ah, thank you.The light was so perfect on that day though which made good pictures easy. We had plenty of snow for me to capture but I'm also relieved it's gone for now. Winter pictures coming up soon. Hope you're having a good week!
    @Gracienne - Merci beaucoup. Oui, c'est un endroit magique et on a toujours envie d'y retourner. Je crois que les jardins là sont beaux toute l'année.
    @Haddock - Thanks so much. As I said, it was perhaps the loveliest day of the year with the most amazing light and I felt very lucky to be able to visit Kew that day.

  11. I'm not sure how I found you, but your about me section amused me so I thought I'd say hi! I'm also an English girl living in Germany :-)

    These photos are lovely. I especailly like the sunset one. I see this post was from a while ago, so hopefully you'll see this.

  12. I finally tried the cakes at Sarah Wiener's restaurant in Hamburger Bahnhof, which you recommended to me some three years ago. Here's hoping all's well with you in England. x
