I had a lovely day out at Kew Gardens in London this weekend. It was especially good because there was an exhibition of sculpture and art in the open air setting as well as indoor locations. I thought you might like to see some of the pictures I took showing the artwork among the wonderful autumn colours.
Patches of sunlight, green leaves, and blue sky were reflected on the shallow milky water of the pond. Bare branches and twigs draped over and into the pool. A few pine needles and autumn leaves lay motionless on the meniscus. A delicate matrix of dying Mud Water Starwort stems could be seen making abstract patterns just below the shaded surfaces while swathes of something russet and mysterious cloaked the mud.
The woodland floors are scattered with fallen leaves, seeds, and fruits, some from this year some from last, amongst the rotting timbers of long fallen trees. The squirrels find plenty to store for future feasting.
Leaf not changing colour gradually over the entire surface but dying progressively from the margins inwards. The contrasting border at this stage in early autumn looks quite attractive highlighted by the sun light.
