Autumn in the forest

OK, so I can live in denial no more – it’s autumn!

That’s OK though – what’s not to love about this time of year? Especially when you live next door to an enchanted forest – full of freely roaming ponies, cows, pigs, pixies, etc. I only wish I led a lifestyle that meant I could spend more of my daylight hours there.

Things I like about autumn:

  • walks in the forest, kicking up the leaves
  • soup
  • golden leaves
  • smell of bonfires and fireworks (esp. 5th November)
  • socks
  • crumpets
  • woolly jumpers
  • better stuff on the TV
  • predominance of the colour orange
  • apples
  • mugs of cocoa

Things I don’t like about autumn:

  • Lack of daylight
  • Christmas! ( I love christmas, just not in October.)

How about you – anything you love or loathe about this time of year?

cows - new forest
piggies and fungi - new forest
leaves - new forest
pony - new forest
