Seeing the landscape change from shades of green to a palette of coppers, oranges and browns is what makes this time of year so special. We witnessed this shift in seasons on a walk in the forest, hand in hand, observing the growing collection of fallen acorns and leaves tinted in all colours of autumn.
Patches of heather that were once pigmented with violet had now lost their vividness. All around us, shrubs and undergrowth exhibited the tell-tale signs of October, hints of butterscotch slowly making their way through the last of the year’s greenery.
The air itself was different: crisp with the occasional chilly breeze ruffling nature around us like feathers. On the way back, I spotted a band of horses, huddling together for warmth amongst the thicket of trees. We finished our walk with warm apple Pimm’s at home, nestled under a blanket, thoroughly refreshed with all that autumn has to offer.
