Life of leaf

Spent the day entertaining my youngest and trying to tidy up outside whilst building a mini-world for lego men in the garden.  Figure that poking upright sticks into the lawn to form the fence of an encampment would go a small way towards autumn aeration of the sodden grass;  buried crashed aeroplanes on the camp's perimeter in piles of fallen leaves, but my favourite bit of all was building a tiny camp fire with 'flames' of the finely cut red leaves of my Japanese maple 'Palmatum dissectum' poking through the carefully laid twig logs. Recaptured the essence of childhood for one fleeting moment - priceless!!
