I went for a walk with my cats this afternoon, they like getting out as there's always so much to see and smell. Today it was just a short walk, because especially the boy isn't that fond of the cold. The girl doesn't mind the cold that much, as long as it's not raining as she doesn't like to get wet. It it's raining she won't get out at all, while the boy doesn't mind a walk if it's just a drizzle, but it it gets any heavier he too wants to get indoors as quickly as possible. I have to say that they're quite different to what they like and dislike and they have very different temperaments, still they are (most of the time) good friends and they do like each-other.
Until now we have had a rather mild autumn, there's been a few frost nights before this, but the days have been quite warm and I noticed during the walk that there still was flowers on the rose-bushes. Now I think what's left of the green leaves and flowers will soon be gone, I noticed that those plants who had resisted the approach of winter until now had began wither away. It makes me a bit sad, even if the trees stretching their bare branches toward the sky makes one notice their shapes much better than when they're green, there's not much colour around during the winter. That's even more true when there's no snow on the ground, then it's only different shades of browns in the grass and the trees, a few evergreens here and there and if the weather is cloudy, a muted shade of grey covering everything.
