Changing Seasons – Autumn at it’s best

Autumn is here and it’s been such beautiful weather this week that I couldn’t resist grabbing my camera and taking a few snap-shots of the gorgeous colours that I’m seeing in my neighbourhood at the moment.

This is my view as I walk my girls to school in the mornings 🙂

Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that make you happy.

Autumn Colours!

What do you love about the Autumn?   I love the colours, the crunch and the conkers!

 

Don’t Forget To Look Up!

This shot was actually taken in the little playground next a few doors down from our house.  I just sat on the bench admiring the the beautiful tree tops whilst the girls were playing.

I also took my girls to look for conkers (horse chestnuts), acorns and leaves today so that we could do some seasonal crafts and have some conker competitions.

I’m on a mad mission to introduce the art of playing conkers here.

Every time I explain to people here in the Netherlands what we do with the conkers in the UK, they look at me very strangely and with a strained smile say “Ah ok……..” as though I am completely bonkers!

 

What do you like to do in the autumn / fall?  Do you have any craft or décor ideas?
