Photo Challenge- Magic

I recently watched the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. There is a moment when Lucy emerges from the back of the wardrobe into the frozen world of Narnia.  I felt just for a second or two, the thrill of magic, seeing a new world of snow and ice. Remembering from childhood how it felt to see snow that has fallen softly and silently at night, transforming the countryside into somewhere different and magic, where the unexpected can happen.

Walking through woods I feel something very similar. Something fleeting seen out of the corner of my eye, I shiver in longing!

Amidst the trees are there unicorns, fairies,or knights on white horses?

Believe in Magic?

I do.

Do you?

The sun shone, well mostly, so we headed off to the Arboretum at Castle Howard for some Autumn Colour, which I hope you enjoy as much as we did.

Clouds, I thought the blue in the middle looked like a rabbit. Mr E says I am very strange.
