Autumn Days

Hello lovely readers, how are you? I hope you haven't been too caught up in the storm. It's not been too bad here in north London, a few fallen trees, but nothing major. Other than crazy weather, I do love autumn. {Well, it is when I was born, after all...} I love the colour of the leaves on the trees, the 'back to school' excitement that hangs in the air, fallen conkers, and the gorgeous feeling of wrapping up warm. I'm determined to make the most of the season, and have a lot of ideas for my autumn list of things to do. What better time to carve a pumpkin, make hearty soups and take long walks? I recently had the joy of spending a night away, with work colleagues, for our annual staff conference. Geographically it wasn't all that far from home, but it's amazing where you can find yourself after spending half an hour on the train. The conference centre was a gorgeous house built in the 1800s, surrounded by 40 acres of delightful countryside. A world away from busy north London!

So, when we had some free time I made the most of the surroundings and went on a walk, taking photos as I went. I'm still learning so much about photography, but it was so wonderful to have some time to enjoy it, no pressure. I just love taking long walks, too. There's nothing quite like a walk to clear your head and get some fresh air in your lungs.

Here are some of my photos. I was so lucky as the weather was absolutely amazing - both at sunset, and at sunrise the following day!

All these photos remind me of the song I sang as a child in my school assembly...

Autumn days when the grass is jewelled, and the silk inside a chestnut shell. 

Jet-planes meeting in the air to be refuelled. All these things I love so well. 

So I mustn't forget. No, I mustn't forget. 

To say a great big thank you. I mustn't forget 

I am most thankful for this beautiful season! Do you love autumn, too?
