Autumn Colour Spotting in Bridport

blog24092017

It’s a cloudy Sunday afternoon, I’ve got a tray of ginger snaps in the oven and one ready waiting to go in as soon as the other has finished baking. The house is quite except for the low rumble of the oven, the ticking of the timer and the sound of my computer keys as I type this very instant. Alan is quietly working in the lounge on some artwork and I relish the glimpses of autumn colours I can see growing daily through the windows of our dear little home.

The weekend has been fairly mellow, rooted in tasks around the home and getting ahead with things for the Etsy shop. We took a break yesterday afternoon to have a walk around town and enjoy the already vibrant emerging colours and I took a few snaps. It was a gorgeous sunny day so we had plenty of opportunities to enjoy being outdoors. The first few photos are just snaps of areas near to our home as we headed into town with the last being almost to the town centre.

From town we walked over to Mountfield where the council offices are as behind that is the Millenium Green where we proceeded to walk about up to the fields directly behind the former house turned offices. Below are some views first from around the outside of Mountfield and the field behind.

Though there is still a lot of green about, daily more colours emerge as autumn settles in. Walking through the hollow into the Millenium Green the leaves of autumns past still cover the path as you slowly see signs of more colourful leaves to come and signs of late summer in the blackberries that still appear on the brambles. Chestnuts begin to cover the path as well and cheeky little squirrels can be seen darting from branch to branch.

These are the makings of another beautiful autumn and I hope to share more of that with you in the future. I am trying to blog more frequently and be a bit more consistent with this blog. Use it for what I always intended it for, to share the beauty and wonder of this life we lead, simple as it may be and share some of what I love with the world at large. Our walk concluded with a stop to look at the colours emerging at St. Swithun’s Churchyard. Here are a few snaps from there.

Well my lovely readers, my ginger snaps are getting on and I need to find some tins to fill with the ones that have already come out of the oven and cooled sufficiently on the rack. Thank you for joining me on this virtual walk and I hope you will find time to peruse more posts if this is your first time here.

Cheers,

For those of you who aren’t as autumn mad as I am here is a lovely list of ways to get happy about autumn from The Old Fashioned Mama.

I’d love to try this autumn flowers heart wreath from A handmade cottage this year.

Sometimes I love looking back at the beautiful photographic posts of Kitty and Nathan from Searching for Tomorrow. This post, The deer ones, is from September 2016 and is delightful.
