The New Forest is amazing at this time of year.  Abundant wildlife, enjoying the feasts of brambles and haws; festive berries just turning ripe and lots of fun in the mud & puddles …

Playing in the Forest

Autumn is my favourite season of the year.  There’s still some summer-warmth in the sun’s rays but there’s also expectation of the need to conserve & preserve the fat & fruits of the harvest.  There’s the awakening of some long-mellowed instinct to create a warm and cosy home, ready for the frosty mornings and frozen nights.

I need to gather berries, make jam, break out the blankets and bask in the few remaining moments of warmth in the sun.  Time for wellies & walking boots – and a clothes peg for my nose as we travel home with 2 very smelly collies!
