.... the autumn leaves......

For us in Europe the clocks fall back tonight, the days become noticeably shorter and the world outside is just about prepared for the winter ahead.  Meanwhile, we'll hunker down in front of log fires for the first time in many months - it's not all bad.  Though the summer wasn't one of our best, we've had a fabulous autumn here in South West France and for those of you who have been here during the high-season heat and are curious about  what it's like at Les Soeurs Anglaises for the rest of the year, here are a few photographs ......
