Recently I was asked to make a post all about Autumn. Though the project was supposed to be in and out of the home, I found majority of my inspirations outside. Sadly our house is a bit of a DIY disaster, so we don’t tend to change with the seasons, just when we get time to redecorate. However since Ocean Loans said it could be in AND out, I decided to share some polaroid snaps with you all.
Majority of our autumn is found on the walk to school. In the colour of the trees, the leaves on the ground and the conkers on the trees. I consider our family very lucky to live in the countryside and experience the joys of changes in all the seasons.
Autumn is one of my favourite seasons so I love taking pictures of everything autumn means to me. On the walk to school I love crunching through all the leaves and of course, all the beautiful colours they come in.
I drive to get the girls from school, 20 minutes along country lanes, and then I walk down another lane to get to their school. On the way I can see lots of beautiful trees and bushes, again showing off all the glorious colours of autumn.
Finally one of my most favourite things about autumn is the conkers. I remember fondly, the conker fights of youth and though these are no longer allowed in most schools, I still love conkers. I don’t know if its the shape, the shine or the feel of them. There is just something very appealing about conkers to me. They really are the sign of autumn in my eyes.
Christmas will soon be around the corner and my house will definitely change for that – and winter I guess. However I’ve really enjoyed sharing my autumn favourites with you. Of course, there is snuggling up under a blanket with the kids, hot chocolate with marshmallows and wrapping up warm in jumpers and scarfs. These are just a few things that sum up Autumn to me.
