Six word Saturday



A refugee on my bathroom windowsill!

A tiny leaf

A tiny leaf, wrenched away from its bigger brothers and sisters

Pretty, aren't they?

Pretty, aren’t they?

I like this shadow almost as much as the leaf

I think I like this shadow as much as the leaf itself!

The holly and the ivy

Can it be holly and ivy time already?

Conkers, anyone?

The conkers have already fallen

But how delicious are these?

But how delicious are these?

Are you enjoying this lovely Autumn season?  It passes all too quickly.  Come and share in the festival of leaves this weekend.  I’m sharing mine on Six Word Saturday.  I know Cate won’t mind.

What will you be sharing?  Whatever it is, I hope you have a joyful weekend.



  1. You’re right. Autumn leaves don’t last long. We’re expecting rain tomorrow. I hope it won’t spoil too many leaves.

  2. I went out and took some pictures, but haven’t done anything with them yet….sidelined for most of a week by an abscessed tooth.

    So happy to share your leaves. You have a knack for capturing them!

      1. Much better now! Almost done with the antibiotic, and a week away from the extraction. And my smile isn’t lopsided anymore!

        I’ve been scanning my Flickr, making a mental list of window pics to share…maybe not until December, since we’re getting very close to NaNoWriMo now, and I’ve got a bit over half a novel to plot yet, but definitely, there will be windows, and walks, and walks with windows…=)

  3. Autumn is more generous in your parts. I was at the botanical garden today again, thinking of taking pics for one of our future walks and in my entire walk I saw one red leaf and that was in a street close to my home, not in the botanical garden :D. Boa noite Jo 😉

    1. I do find myself peering at a lot of flowers and plants! Just fascinated by what you can see in close up, I guess. 🙂 There are such lovely colours right now- so soon to disappear!

    1. I like silly questions, Sue 🙂 A horse chestnut. What do you call them? And do you keep them in vinegar to make them shiny and play ‘conkers’ with them? Obviously not 😦 I’m told they’re good for keeping moths away too? Is that enough silly answers? Happy Sunday to you!

    1. Guy Fawkes, Mrs. M. 🙂 Why do you ask?
      I’ve seen a few of your comments as I flitted around blogland but not come to say ‘hi’. Meant to! How’re things with you?

  4. These are all gorgeous Jo! I love the shadow and the last one the most! Fall is my favorite time of year with all the variegated colors and mixed sun and shade. You really captured the fall feeling!

  5. Love the reds Jo, and the shadows. This is my second favourite season (spring being the first) but as an October baby, it is very special to me. Have a lovely weekend – hope it keeps dry!

    1. You had a nice birthday jaunt in Dorset, didn’t you? What happened with Seattle? Another city I’d love to see! 🙂

      Just floating down the river with Cathy. Her photos of the karsts have been spectacular. It was lovely here this morning but fading rapidly.

      1. Cancelled Seattle because of Sydney – too expensive to do both although I justified upgrading to premium seats to Sydney as I wasn’t paying for flights to the USA! So it didn’t save me that much, but hopefully I’ll be more comfortable flying all that way.

        Cathy’s trip was lovely, though I am more than happy to travel vicariously with her, the heat, the food, the crowds are not my thing at all.

  6. Isn’t autumn so beautiful? Lovely leaves Jo and yes, I love that shadow too. But my favourite? The first photo of the tiny leaf on your windowsill. Just love that one… 🙂

    1. It’s not a great shot, Sherri, but the sweet little thing just called to me and I had to grab the camera. Mick thinks I’m a mad woman. What am I saying? He knows! 🙂

      1. I have Jo….I thought it was time update what was about 7 years old!
        I was playing around taking selfies…..which I dont really ever do….in the garden and I thought this one looked a little mischevious 🙂
        Oh, and I do love a good leaf kicking/ swirling session!

  7. I don’t have autumn here yet, sadly, Jo. I’ll be posting pictures soon of a botanical garden I visited today and it’s still as tropical, hot and humid as ever. We had a taste of cooler weather earlier this week, but it dissipated and now it’s back to summer. I miss fall so much, so your photos made me smile. Especially the “delicious” one. 🙂

    1. I like that ‘delicious’ one too 🙂 It’s still warm here, which is extraordinary for mid October! They had torrential rain in Portugal last week and I was sunning it over here. How crazy is that?
      What will you do for your birthday, Cathy? I should have got your Chinese address then I could have sent you a card. 😦

      1. Aw, you’re sweet, Jo. Don’t worry about a card. Just plan on meeting me some time in the future! You’re sweet just to remember my birthday at all! I’m terrible about that kind of thing. My plan next weekend is to visit Detian Waterfall on the border of Vietnam. I just have to figure out how to get there. That will be my birthday present to myself. 🙂

  8. We’re well past peak here in The Kingdom. Temps dropping this weekend & the wind’ll pick up considerably. I guess pretty soon we’ll be able to see the neighbor’s house. Bummer.
