Although its not quite yet officially Autumn for a few more days, it has been feeling decidedly autumnal this week, so I thought I would share a few of my walking to work photos and musings with you all. I love walking to work and have posted quite a few photos of my on-foot commuting on this blog. I love the time on my own to just let my thoughts wander and also to take the time to observe the changing seasons. I try to take a different route each day. My trusty smart phone camera allows me to snap away to my hearts content (thanks DH for getting it for me!!) and I love to look back on the photos I take.
When I was little, my darling Mum and I used to gather rosehips to make syrup with - full of vitamin C and tasted delicious. These rose bushes are very long-lived as they are still there, and I often pass them on one of my various routes into work.
At a distance I guess it doesnt look much, but in close up, well that is a different matter
Such abundant fruitfulness, from a tree that is over 50 years old. Amazing. Further on down the lane I spotted these glistening jewels
Im hoping that we will have a spot of decent weather this weekend so that I can get enough of these little beauties to make a crumble!
Finally, I have decided to have a bit of autumn fun. One of my walking routes takes me over a little bridge over a brook, from where this view is captured
For the past few years I have been reading a website all about Autumn (or Fall!) in New England, and one of the contributers posts an photo from her window each week showing how autumn is progressing in her neighbourhood. I have always loved this view from the bridge due to the colourful trees and shrubs in the autumn so here is the deal - I will take a photo from this vantage point each week and post it on my blog so we can see how the autumn colours are developing and changing.
I would love it if you would join in and post pictures of your weekly autumn views too! If you would like to join me in this venture, please post a comment and pop the following photo on your blog sidebar
I really hope you will join me!
Have a super weekend, Helenxx
