The main lesson I learned from my wander down the garden last week was that it desperately needed me to spend time tidying up!
These brightly coloured leaves are pretty now but will quickly decay to a soggy brown mush.
And the wind hasn't finished fetching them all off yet!
Down at the very bottom of the garden, the two holly bushes are sporting bright red berries as though reminding me that, in spite of the unseasonably mild November weather, Christmas is less than a month away.
S'pose that's something else I'd better get on with!
