Last year I went to Stourhead at the end of October, to see the glorious autumn colour. Circumstances this autumn meant that I didn’t get there until yesterday, by which time a lot of the leaves had fallen. There was still plenty to see and it was a perfect day for another ‘getting back my fitness’ stroll. Rather than repeat last years post, I’m joining Jude’s Garden Challenge with a few leaves, because she wants to see anything found in a woodland environment.
Jude’s post is about the New Forest in Hampshire, pop over and see, maybe join in!

Absolutely beautiful. 😀
I have seen rhodies in flower too, maybe they have a second flowering if the weather has been warm? I love the colours you show – especially the toffee and the silvery bracken.
Magnificent color. 🙂 Our fall has been superb too. ❤ ❤
I can imagine, everything is so much bigger over there!
I’m not sure it’s much bigger but the thinking had been we wouldn’t get much color this fall because of the summer weather we’d had. Ha. It’s been magnificent–better than anything in my recent memory. ❤
The poet Stanley Horowitz sees the art in nature, explaining, “Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.”
Enjoyed your collection of mosaics. The best part of strolling in October is the sound of crunching with each step and the smell of autumnal bliss.
Nature is the most masterful artist all year long.
Golden sunshine is my favourite 🙂 Did you have a lovely day? Silly question- you must have! Here’s the evidence. 🙂 🙂
It was great, my first drive of any distance as well!
I love Stourhead in autumn!
It’s doubly lovely to see this post – the images (especially the fern), and the fact that you’re out and about. Tuesday hugs to you.
Thanks sweetheart and hugs right back to you ❤
Especially like the light through the leaves. Gorgeous colors in the slide show, Gilly.
Why can’t it just stay autumn?
Toffee and chlorophyll-less are my favourite. Lovely slideshow!
I don’t care if the leaves are fading. I still love the colors.
Beautiful, Gilly! I miss Fall Leaves already…
I love Autumn ..
