Cold Snaps

Sharp sun, blue skies and crisp cold here today - real autumn.

Look, some blackberries have still to ripen.

And I found some conkers my girls haven't gathered yet (their room is full of them).

So I think I at last get to post this...

Coldcut - 'Autumn Leaves' (Irresistible Force Full Chill Mix) (1993)

[Realise the lovely original was written in France in 1945 and you get a whole new perspective on its sadness and sense of loss. The French lyrics ('Les Feuilles Mortes') were by the poet Jacques Prevert. And speaking of poetry, may I also recommend the 1958 Miles Davis version with Cannonball Adderley from this ? Ta.]
