An Autumn Walk in the Woods

One of my favourite things to do before the Wee One came along was to take a walk in the heritage trail that is a stones throw from our house. It's one of the most beautiful, peaceful walks I know, and is gorgeous in all weathers, but absolutely stunning in autumn. 

I've not been down there since the Wee One was born, mostly because it's inaccessible with a pram and there's bumps, steps and terrain that you just can't navigate with a buggy. But now that the Wee One is that wee bit older, we took a stroll down there this week. 


It was pretty chilly, so hats and coats kind of weather. 



Parts of the trail look over quite a steep drop, so naturally my daredevil child had to climb up to look over. 


The leaves on the tree are still quite green from a distance. 


Our primary aim for this walk to collect interesting leaves and sticks to make an autumnal picture. We took our very pretty tree print canvas bag (made by Tickled Pink Crafts - she's awesome, follow her on Twitter, @T1ckledP1nk) and set about collecting lots of interesting leaves. These spotty ones were my favourite. 


The leaves have made carpet, covering the pathway (and subsequently masking some very muddy, boggy dips in the path that we got stuck in!!)




After an hour or so of wandering, it was time to head home, get warm and start out autumn craft. 




Not a bad effort I must say!

  3. I love those spotty ones too! Will try to do something like this as we are always so tired and cant go far. Walking in the park to collect leaves is so easy and yet so nice to do! Thanks for sharing =) #countrykids

  4. Totally adorable. I have a feeling you might be visiting these woods again and I love the Tickled Pink bag, perfect for collecting those fallen leaves and a masterpiece at the end there. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids
