Dress – charity  shop find, socks – unknown, brogues – TK Maxx, belt – Accessorize via QD

At the weekend we took a trip to Poppy’s wood as I wanted to get in amongst the turning leaves with husband's SLR. The first thing of note was just how much heavier the darn thing was, blimey it weighs a ton! Sadly, it was a bit of a miserable day and the rain started pouring not long into our walk, so we cut our losses and went home early. Husband took a few pictures of me in my floaty dress before the heavens opened so at least I didn't look like a drowned rat.

There were a a variety of trees in various stages of fruiting and de-leafing. I though these apples looked like baubles, all very pretty.

I tried to capture the spectrum of colours that were on display and although the light was poor I like the effects.

The dress was a recent charity shop find on a trip to Bury St Edmunds with Hazel  and a snip at £5 as it’s a rather nice Red Herring dress. The colour and print is perfect for autumn as it still feels cheerful yet steers clear of the cliché summer florals.

The bushes were so full of berries that they were heaving under the weight
I hear the heat wave may be returning for the weekend… can't say I’m upset!
