Coco’s Autumn colours…..

brambles_string_07sept_0155The rays of warm, late afternoon sunlight, that were diffused through the kitchen window rideaux, made the spoonful of apricot jam sparkle. Smearing jam and cream onto egg yellow sponge was the final act of this afternoon’s baking. The colours were right. Earlier I had walked the lanes to see the season. Although the hedges are laden with rich green foliage, the overall palette is slowly sliding towards ochres and russets, which soft colours are becoming evident on the edges of leaves, like the contrasting trim on a Chanel blazer.

    I thought I was going to be dazzled by the exciting new costume of Coco for a minute…
    I particularly like the last picture – Mr. Hockney could have painted that one 😉

  3. Do you prefer the Autumn season?

  4. Rich and contrasty images great, but where is the result of the afternoon baking?

  5. Love the Chanel comparison, Roger.

  6. Your autumn is looking a lot prettier than our autumn in the States right now.

    Your description is very appropriate for how the landscape looks here in Maine. I wish I had the apricot jam to complete the picture.

  10. Beautiful! And I’d rather have an apricot sponge cake than a Chanel Blazer 😉

  11. Roger–Your photos! I want to walk the trail and see the things you photographed.

  12. Michelle says:

    It’s almost here, isn’t it? Quite beautiful, Roger. But it won’t make up for the horror of winter.
