Hello October ....

October always seems to herald the start of darker times, a move closer to Winter as the days shorten & the colours deepen.

I love the way the seasons blend seamlessly into each other, the changes subtle but distinct. Every morning I look out of my window, above the tree tops & onto the fields & I can see the changes ...

After a week of wild weather & floods - fortunately not for us, we needed to clear the cobwebs so headed out to a favourite local place - attingham-park



Oh dear - the chickens were very cute when they roamed but ...


The beautiful walled garden is still full of colour - gorgeous flowers in favourite colours ...


Towering trees frame this path - can you see the walkers in the distance?


I love the simple lines of this bridge & how it has a gentle bounce as you walk over ...


and the patterns made by the leaves & the sky ....


Which way today - deer park or woodland?


Tiny orange fungi look very cute pushing up amongst the moss ...


and Autumn leaves .... 

Autumn leaves

The magnificent Attingham Park - my favourite view, a Downton Abbey type moment!


and the river Severn near the historic Ironbridge in Shropshire ....


Hope you are ready for October & the change of season it brings. Thanks for stopping by, always lovely to read the comments & return the visits!

    1. I have just read your blog & gosh - it is strange that we both walk along the River Severn, even if I am further up than Worcester near Ironbridge.

      I love your hardwares - they are just so pretty! I will definitely be following your blog in future.

  6. It is my very favorite season...but I'm not sure...it might not be as dark/dreary as it looks to be there. I don't thrive in heat...so this is wonderful!

Thank you for visiting Auntie Bliss - I have returned the visit & love your blog, especially the photo of your Mom & her s-i-l gadding about in their little golf cart at 84 and 92 years old - that is the spirit ladies, embrace life. I love your blog & will add it to my essential reading list!
