A Coating of Many Colours

The battle against the invading force of leaves has entered its second month, with the gardeners still holding back on using the big machinery. The shoulders and arms may be tired, but the team keep the leaves from the paths and lawns. The unusually warm weather has continued and the leaves are clinging onto the trees with their last ounce of strength, but once the frost arrives a fall of huge proportions will occur.
This continued mild weather has resulted in a spectacular coat of many colours, both on the ground and on the trees. Bronze, Gold, Brown, Yellow,Orange, the list of adjectives is unending, as the leaves change colours and slowly float to the ground.
