I always think that the tulip tree in our garden looks lovely at this time of year
even when it is shedding its leaves all over the place.
I love to see them blowing about in the wind.
I took some of these photos on a sunny, dry day last week
when we'd ventured out to do a little bit of tidying up.
Since then we seem to have had an awful lot of rain
The leaves that were blowing happily around the garden being chased by cats and squirrels
are now rather brown and soggy looking!
