At this time of year, if the sun shines even just a little in England,you head out doors to make the most of it. Last week I headed out in search of Autumn colours.
Past the bullocks in the river field.
Along the track which runs by the railway. I love this old truck.
And into the woods known locally as the Quarry Bottoms! For the obvious reason that it is the bottom of an old quarry, and was a favourite walk of us children when I was growing up.
You can see where the stone was cut from the rocks.
Wonder what this is doing here?
the last of the blackberries which we had in a pudding called Pear and Blackberry steamed pudding. Went a funny pink colour and was rather moist! Recipe from Morrisons supermarket magazine this month.
Just love the carpet of leaves at this time of year.
Blown against a mossy tree trunk.
And so home, but not before I had collected a lovely selection of autumn leaves, which I dried in newspaper at home.
I left them in a pile on the paper in the lounge all weekend, and so wise to my ways is Mr E that not ONCE did he ask what they were doing there!
Hope you all enjoying some sunshine this weekend. And the leaves are there for a reason….
