There's something very satisfying about kicking your way through piles of fallen leaves. Especially when the sun is shining through and on Autumn leaves in their full glory and seed-heads abound on a variety of different plants. A day like today reminds me how lucky I am to live in a beautiful city like Edinburgh, especially with the botanic gardens only a 10 minute walk away. The gardens were full of happy contented people today of all ages and from several countries going by the mix of overheard languages. Reminds me why I decided to make my living from the world of gardening.
