This time of year the woods are such a beautiful place to visit.
The ever changing assortment of colours and the transition of plants and trees as they prepare for colder months is one of natures true spectacles.
My dream is to one day experience fall in all its glorious splendour in New England, for now I shall delight in the amazing display good ol’ Blighty puts on for us.
Whilst the majority of the trees haven’t yet taken on the multitude of colours we see during autumn there was plenty of colour to be seen elsewhere.
After the heavy rain and strong winds we had last week the lake was over flowing and carpeted with a beautiful array of leaves.
The best thing about our trip to the woods was my discovery of the Mr Snuffleupagus Tree. Just look at it! I couldn’t get a decent photo of the entire tree, but just imagine a tree made up entirely of Mr Snuffleupagus trunks….crazy amazing!
Whilst the boys are too young to appreciate anything from Sesame Street, they were stoked by this huge felled tree, lots of fun to clamber on.
Once again I was unable to leave without gathering a little hoard of autumnal goodies, I’m running out of ideas to do with it all!
