Seeing differently: autumn colours in the garden

I went to the National Trust garden at Holt to enjoy the autumn colours before the garden closes for the winter.

It was, as ever, a delight.  There were plenty of people there enjoying the good half term weather with picnics in the orchard or just looking at the beautiful gardens.

They’ve made a hidden Forest School classroom, tucked away in a copse.

There was so much colour, of leaves, flowers, and berries.

And then I saw the trees in the orchard, which were even more colourful than I had expected.

Definitely a ‘Magic Jug’ moment.

Now I've passed 60 I'm still doing all sorts of things I haven't done before, as well as carrying on with the things I already love. I live a happy life with my long term love Malcolm. In my blog I explore local and low tech ideas, food, growing, making, reading, thinking, walking, and lots of other words ending in 'ing'.

    • We are NT members, which makes it possible to just pop in for the odd half hour whenever we’re passing. The forest school area is great, I agree. And really the whole place is a delight. Interesting to see the efforts they’ve made over the past few years to make it feel more welcoming and accessible.

I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
