Stingray



This was on my car this morning. A flaming creature landed from the skies above. Looks like Autumn has arrived.

It’s from a lovely Maple tree which we planted shortly after we moved here. After 10 years growth it’s a pure delight in all seasons. A spreading green canopy in summer and a glorious flaming torch in Autumn.



Doesn’t it look like some sort of flying creature? Like a flying mantis or Portuguese Man-O-War?

Got my leaflet for the Knitting & Stitching Show this week. I'm really looking forward to it. This year the organisers are claiming it will be the biggest and best ever, with more actual craft stalls and fewer people selling funny irons and boot polish.

Let's hope. Tho' I might wear me boots just in case.

That leaf is gorgeous, really looks like a fire butterfly of kind.
