Late Leaves

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

Today's My World photo shows, a little belatedly, a leafy Autumn scene in Ashton.

The view is looking down Holden Street, in the Hurst Brook area of the town, towards Canterbury Street. On the right is the Kingsfield Residential Care Centre. To the left, out of shot, is the Hurst Laundry, occupying the former Water Street Hat Works, which was seen in a photo last year.

I should have shown the photo a few weeks ago - there is not much left of the leaves now and we have had the first very thin coating of snow in the last day or so. It seemed a shame not to make use of the photo, though,and the colours look very warming as I sit and shiver on this wintry evening!

See Google Street View of this location. See Birds Eye View of this location.

"Late Leaves" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.


  1. What a lovely autumn world! And such lovely colors! Great capture whenever it was taken! Hope your week goes well!


  2. Beautiful carpet of leaves, a pity they go so soon.

  3. This colour is nice to see now that the trees are bare and the ground is a dull brown.

  4. Yes we mustn't waste our autumn shots now the snow is here.

  5. Still lovely to see. Looks very homey and warm!

  6. I knew as soon as I saw it that the building on the right was a residential care centre. They all look the same, somehow, even if the architecture is different. I'm so grateful they exist, however, as both of my parents reached the point where they could no longer live alone, even in an assisted living facility. The staff at the care facility provided wonderful personal care, and we were so grateful. We could, and did, visit often, and each time were sure Mother and Dad were getting the best care possible.
