Plans for October - Pumpkin house and Autumn Scenes
In the meantime will share the following pictures from a stroll in the woodland at the end of September, it has been unseasonably warm and I'm hoping that I can get some great autumn colours but not yet it appears. But my joy was finding for the first time in years the fairy tale toadstool, the red cap, (they always appeared in the old stories from Hans Christian Anderson and Grimms Fairy Tales), this woodland is magical there is a story around every corner.
The knotted roots look like the ones from the Lord of the Rings, you almost expect them to get up and start walking, these are the beech trees and they give some fabulous looking pictures.
The woodland goes from young woodland to old gnarled trees. Those that have stood for a long time and young saplings, from dark and eerie to light ethereal just fantastic. You can just loose yourself in childhood dreams, the dark forest of Hansel and Gretal and the old trees of Sherwood forest ..... oh why did I have to become old. :o)
