Autumn is definitely upon us. While we’ve enjoyed bright sunshine and high temperatures for this time of year there is an unmistakable chill to the wind and the mornings are darker. Part of me mourns the passing of long Summer days but another part of me looks forward to crunchy woodland walks, the lighting of our new stove (once the walls are plastered and decorated!) and the drinking of hot chocolate.
I love this shot! the dappled light shining through the trees makes me happy. This was taken in Puzzlewood near Ross-on-Wye. It was allegedly the inspiration behind Middle Earth and lots of TV programmes have been filmed in these woods (Merlin for one – I loved that programme! Dragons, magic, Camelot – for a Toadstool lover like me it was just fab!) If you get a chance to go and check it out for yourself I highly recommend it. A few tips – expect to get muddy (it is the woods after all!) it is not buggy friendly (200 steps) take your camera … oh and stop at the cafe on the way out!
It really is a very magical place.
Not much crochet has taken place recently but I foresee nights on the sofa snuggled by the fire with a basket of yarn and hook by my side in the near future. Will show you what I’m up to as soon as I have started (oh and found my camera which seems to have vanished!)
Until next time, I’ll be making the most of dry weather!
