Autumn Blues

The 'Autumn blues' quiltlet is complete----I think!
Its ten inch square was made in memories of many Autumns spent at KenMark,when the several silky oak trees(Grevilliea robusta) used to deposit great heaps of leaves...which required regular raking and burning.
It really made my autumns blue......we felt like squirrels in one of those round cages......never finished until spring arrived!
Several large garbage bins each day.

But the October blossoms brought the birds for the nectar,and by Summer we had wonderful shade on the western outlook; No pleasure without a little pain.

Leaves in the Autumn come tumbling down
Scarlet and yellow,russet and brown.
Leaves in the garden swept in a heap
The trees are ready to sleep.
