Let the show begin

Meteorologists have been saying that when autumn finally gets started then the mild weather we’ve been having should mean it will be a very colourful one, leaf-wise.

Well, I think it’s finally got started and it is indeed looking spectacular – I went for a wander with the Mr, my brother and niece. Look at us all with our camera gear – watch out trees, you’re about to get ‘papped’!

It’s rather handy having a National Park full trees on your doorstep…

And not just any old trees, no, this here is the tallest tree in England – even taller than Big Ben apparently…

But it’s not just the trees though, there are also some amazing fungi…

And of course there’s the New Forest ponies, including this blonde beauty…

But mainly it is about the leaves. So many leaves and so much colour – I love it…

    I was in the New Forest this weekend. The colors were indeed beautiful. I sometimes think that the landscape can look a little weather-ravaged and hard in the Forest but it’s always atmospheric and makes me long for romantic wind-swept walks followed by a mug of hot cocoa by a roaring fire. Unforuntately time did not permit this time and, before I knew it, we were heading back to Brussels again. Next time…
