Looking back at the month
Brian & I hope you will join us in reflecting & recapping our months of October.
🍂 🍂 🍂
In order to rehabilitate from a repeated calf muscle injury, I used the Learning Forest as a training track: it afforded fairly flat terrain, trees provided green therapy, and it was just long & varied enough to loop without boredom.
I am not typically a fan of running the same place every day, but one of the joys of doing so for an extended period is that you begin to recognise regular fellow-exercisers as well as the people who work there.
The Garden Ranger was there every morning filling his large black garbage bag with the fallen leaves of the Elephant’s Ear Tree. I’d spoken with him earlier this week to find out the tree to which these ginormous leaves belonged.
The Feature Photo shows the Elephant’s Ear Tree leaves in the centre; the lighter green leaves.
I wonder why picks these large leaves up every morning instead of letting them compost with the rest of the fallen leaves.

About The Changing Seasons
The Changing Seasons is a monthly project where bloggers around the world share their thoughts and feelings about the month just gone. We all approach this slightly differently — though generally with an emphasis on the photos we’ve taken during the month.
For many of us, looking back over these photos provides the structure and narrative of our post, so each month is different. Some focus on documenting the changes in a particular project — such as a garden, an art or craft project, or a photographic diary of a familiar landscape.
But in the end, it is your changing season, and you should approach it however works for you.
There are no fixed rules around post length or photo number — just a request that you respect your readers’ time and engagement.
