"You can almost see the fire sprites dancing in the flames!"

I came over a bit arty today, after gathering some acer leaves from my father's garden. The tree looked fantastic with the sun on it but I didn't have a camera with me. So, I took some of the leaves away with me and have done a 'Sarah Raven'.

The title of this post is in tribute to Professor Denzil Dexter. SomeBeans and I are probably the only two people to remember the sketch.

It reminds me of an embroidered firescreen.


Did you notice the gap in the middle that? I was removing a young rat from the kitchen - cat present!

Lucy - how nice. We haven't had a rat (yet), just lively mice.

That's a lovely idea! You've inspired me to leave the warmth of home and go look at the autumnal colours before all the leaves disappear!

Dear HappyM : )
That is beautiful ! it reminds me of the day I was planting the last of the Spring bulbs and I saw my Tiger Eye Sumac "glowing" like this .. my camera could not capture what my eye was shouting at me though .. it was beautiful and I can well imagine how gorgeous your father's tree must have been in the sunlight !

Awesome! A beautiful reflection of autumn.

Maybe could flatten the leaves and keep them in a frame.

That's lovely - very arty :)

Acer leaves are wonderful, aren't they? - so soft and feathery - I always want to stroke them.
