I say this every year but Autumn is my favourite and my best.
Lovely, cool air - enough to get tightly wrapped in your fave scarf and coat and enjoying reddish golden nights that match the surrounding fauna. I love pink cheeks and breathing in so it tickles the back of your throat but best off all we all LOVE kicking crispy leaves.
Tonight, Belle and I went to take the dog for a quick leg round the lake. The boy was suffering with cabin fever as time hasn't been lavish this past week, what with one thing or another so he was dying to go and sniff hither and dither. Belle and I just chatted as we went along discussing cloud formation, what we would have for tea and the happenings of our day.
This is the road just off our street - I love seeing this for about 4 weeks every single year. Those leaves are majestic and jewel-like
the start of our walk and already the colour starts to dazzle
This is one view from around the lake where we trek. GLORIOUS!
I like peeping through the trees, the diffused light is so romantic.
Then onto a sunnier spot and all of a sudden I am staring at pure gold
Look - its so rich!
Time to toss leaves. Ellie points out one that landed on eddy's head. She was besides herself with laughter
Of course, she has to inspect and collect the best looking ones (which i have to ditch every few days to prevent mould setting in the house)
Camouflage.....easily lost in the piles
That toothy grin - man, I love this kid. She is my absolute tonic.
Look at the boysface. He is saying "Gerrof me, you pain-in-the-butt sister blister"
Oh no I wont, she replies....for you are my personal squish bag and I love you
Our reflection in the lake.
A new part of the park has opened - its called the wetlands. We love it but the light was fading fast here.
It has this nature board detailing all the mini beasts residing in the new area. Ellie was practically foaming at the mouth taking all the info in. She loved this bit of the walk the most
Home, James. She made good use of her legs as well as the wheels this evening. We are encouraging her to walk lots but you know, baby steps and all that
And that was our beautiful autumnal walk - only a few more weeks left before it gets REALLY cold and that means more layers, pinker cheeks and hundreds of more photos.
If you click on the Art and Craft button (above, just under the header) you will see a card I made this afternoon.
