My song this week is Autumn Leaves
sung by Susan Boyle

Autumn and signs of
The Fall is a most remarkable time of the year, the colours are Wonderful, from a leaf to the whole wooded area.

BUT it also means its a busy time for Gardeners all over the World - to clear the leaves - which brings me to my Header

Autumn Leaves have to be raked up in certain area's such as Belton House Estate, 
as in my Header

Here we have the Gardeners at work with the Autumn Leaves.

Now let me show you My Colours and  Signs of the Fall
A twig with the colours on the change

Leaves already with their Autumn Colour and nearly ready to fall

A few branches of a tree with its Autumn coat on

A whole tree with its Autumn Coat on, just a little fallen on the ground

The true Autumn Carpet

Lets get DOWN to the floor and see after a while, with folk walking through the Fallen Leaves, they can be very slippery and folk could be in danger of slipping.

Autumn time is THE time for Photographers.

Time for Photographers to capture something like this.
Autumn Reflections

Or this!  - An Autumn Tree Tops Carpet of Colour.

Now, what about the Creatures in the Fall Time
Autumn Swan - with Autumn Colours reflecting with Fallen Leaves Floating.

An Autumn Stag - almost ready for the Rutting Season.

Here's a photo I captured a couple of days ago
in Belton House Grounds

Reflecting - Autumn Time in Autumn Years.

My music this week is a little lad busking in the street.
Well worth watching and listening too.

Well folks, you know me, another out of the box thinking week here.
You may well ask, Are these Street Entertainers?
Well! They are not People as I guess you all thought. These Birds -Turnstones of St Ives are very entertaining to watch, they dance around and almost ask for a titbit to eat, they gather together on the rocks and street by the ocean. Last year I happen to catch these 2 Turnstones in step together, therefore I offer my Header as the 2step Turnstones as Street Performers.

Now for my Post Pics which ARE people.

This is the Floral Dance Day in Helston Cornwall. These Dancers, once a year dress up in their top Hat and Tails  - and Best Evening Gowns, and dance through the street, also the Children have their dance too.  There are also buskers,actors,singers, ect, plus many stalls and food merchants, not forgetting all the pubs selling drinks.

These two Street Entertainers are also at Helston, in their Cornish getup- (dress)

Also from Cornwall
In St Ives was this band of street entertainers, this lass could really play the drums

Here we have also from Cornwall - this chap played very well and his hat and beard attracted many folk to watch him entertain the public.

A true Street Artist at work - we watched him for about 10minutes, he was very swift with his brushes.

From Spain this chappie didn't want to be Photographed but said I could photograph his wonderful work. As you can see.

From Bath - a multi tasker for sure.

This chappie Artist was so in love with this young Ladies singing, you can see by his face, he was lost from the World around him.
Great Street performers.

From Edinburgh
The invisible Man.

This Lady claims to be the lady with the most Piercings?
(wonder if she takes them all out having a shower- lol)

To finish off with

This young Breakdancer lad was just fantastic to watch, moves that I thought was impossible to do - he has also been on TV a few times, 

Well Folks - thats my Street Entertainers - hope you all have enjoyed.
