Wild October. πŸπŸ„

The season is turning to Autumn and the natural world is abundant with colour. A quick glance at Pinterest and I was engulfed in Autumn inspired poetry and quotes.

I can smell Autumn dancing in the breeze, the sweet chill of pumpkin and crisp sunburnt leaves. ( Unknown).

Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the Fall. ( E. Scott Fitzgerald).

Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the Autumn tree. ( Emily Bronte).

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are October’s. ( Anne of Green Gables).

To celebrate the beauty of the natural world in October I’m joining in with the hashtag #wildoctober2019 on Instagram & Twitter. Why not bob over and post your own Wild October finds too. Here are some of the photos I’ve taken so far…

Horse Chestnut, Clitheroe Castle.
Cuckoo Pint Berries, Ladies Walk, Edenhall & Langwathby.
These look like tiny green flowers but I was informed on Twitter they are actually whorls of leaves on Hedge Bedstraw. Found in Melmerby.
Purple Callicarpa Berries, Clitheroe Castle.
Autumn leaves, Ladies Walk, Edenhall to Langwathby.

This weekend I’ve been at the caravan with Wil and Hugo. It’s the first weekend we’ve visited in cooler weather, so it was important to stay snug and warm. My tips for keeping cosy in Autumn are…..

Always have throws and cushions nearby.

I like to light a scented candle.

Cook something hearty and tasty like this yummy Veggie Curry .

Keep a favourite book or magazine to hand.

Or watch some well loved old movies. For an Autumn vibe try Hocus Pocus, When Harry Met Sally, Practical Magic, Beetlejuice or The Craft.

Indoors I live in my slipper boots. πŸ™‚

Outdoors I live in my Wellies! Head for a pub with a roaring fire after a woodland walk.

Keep Cosy.

Enjoy your Wild October. πŸπŸ„πŸ•ΈοΈπŸ¦‡

    1. There are lots on Pinterest at the moment. And loads of Autumnal pictures. You could outdo them though with your lovely peak District views. πŸ™‚

    1. It’s a really nice curry. Kind of Chinese style. I think getting away somewhere different helped with the photos. Not going to the caravan now until the end of the month, so the rest of my pics will probably have to be hunted down in Clitheroe. I like your new winter coat. πŸ™‚

  1. It suits you. And your sky photo today looks lovely. Just been looking back at my blog posts from 2016 when we both joined in with #wildoctober. I think the weather was sunnier!

  2. Autumn is indeed the best, it sounds like you are taking full advantage of all its wonderfulness. I love a cosy fire and a warm cup of tea when you get it from a walk at this time of year.

  3. I thought I’d commented on this once but it seems not – I’ve obviously been too busy writing up my own blog πŸ™‚ I love autumn’s colours but not the fact that it means we are heading into winter – I need summer all year round! πŸ™‚
