Autumn leaves


Autumn leaves are splendid right now in Paris. "Autumn leaves" is also an old French song called "Les feuilles mortes" whose lyrics were written by a famous poet "Jacques Prévert". This song has been sung so many times by so many different singers over the years and one of my favorite version is Barbra's in the 60's both in French and English.

I've been away for a while, but upon returning I am finding that your blog is loading much slower than before...... Other blogs are not having this problem.

And your blog loads slowly for me as well but I'm having that problem with other blogs as well. It's worth the wait here! :)

Nice picture. There are so many autumn leaves here in Toronto too. The colors are just wonderful. But trying to get rid off them after they get all wet and muggy is not so great, now is it? I always have problems with that in my garden thus I have recently put together an article offering some tips about that. If you have no such troubles, just enjoy this colorful autumn.
