We’ve absolutely loved autumn here this year. I feel like it’s the first time that I’ve really embraced the changing of the season, as I’m definitely a warm weather kind of woman, and I can get annoyed when the sunshine leaves me! But, we’ve got out and enjoyed foraging for blackberries, leaf hunts, created some wild art, kicked leaves, jumped in puddles, and I’ve found the changing colours of the trees around us to be so beautiful. And perhaps, as well as our family fun, Project Garden has influenced me this year. Having not been very interested in gardening until this summer, the shrubs and flowers out there were ignored really as soon as the colder weather came, but now I find myself looking out at them, watching their changes and I’ve even been out there gardening – it’s shocking, I know!
So today, I share with you the signs that my garden is giving me that autumn is now ending, and winter is drawing in..
And I found this little beauty nestled amongst some fallen leaves too..
So, sad though I am to see the back of autumn, winter will bring Christmas, one of my favourite times of year, and it seems that for this year, I’ll still have enjoyment from my garden, too, and I’ll be looking forward to seeing what it brings me out there..
