Mother Nature has the best box of crayons ..

We have a woods , it's our favourite woods to visit ..we've tried others but we keep going back to our familiar and traipsing through we always find something new to look at .. It's mushroom season and we are fascinated by the many many varieties around and really , the art to them ..I've yet to go on a fungi course but it's on my wish list of things to do .. We spend time in the company of Jays and Robins whilst I collect branches and the odd fallen log , whilst the boys run and run .... Seasonal changes .. Subtle shifts .. And always a bag of treasures to bring home for display ..x

October ..

My most favourite month of the year ... It's been a glorious few weeks weather wise here in Cornwall but there seems to be the tiniest nip in the air now but it's only slight .. Nevertheless it's set off the beginnings of the hermit side in me .. Candles have been made , wood is being gathered on our trips out , my book pile has been stacked and we've had our first soup .. The boys have come back with an array of treasures in their pockets .. Leaves , acorns and sticks for star wars light saber battles ( watch out ornaments!) and we've still managed some trips to the beach .. The beach in Autumn is lovely .. Still hot but mainly deserted and the waves are high and warm , the boys are still going in .. Not me though .. I'm a watcher of waves , a sitter in sand ..breathing in the ocean xx
