Autumns arrival

The children have been back at school for a while, and new routines are settling. I’m still enjoying walking around without a jacket on but today I felt a definite autumnal nip in the air, along with some signs of nature around me.

I’ve spotted fruitful bramble bushes and colourful piles of leaves in varying green and orange shades around the village. My toddler and I have been dropping helicopter seeds watching them twirl and spin in wonder.

Soon summer clothes will be packed away and we shall enjoy coziness of jumpers warm socks and scarves. Who am I kidding -I live in the West of Scotland where rain and cold are common place no matter what season.
