Autumn Fun

I love Autumn.  The colours are truly fantastic and Autumn sun, yes its a rarity,  is so lovely.  I love to be outdoors in the Autumn sun and love to play outside with the girls.  We ventured outside to have some fun with the leaves.  Living with woods in the back garden means we have a lot of leaves.  

We first decided to make leaf pies.  Think Mud pies but with leaves.

It was not too long before the girls decided they wanted to make Mud pies so this then followed

After exploring the different textures of the leaves to the mud and seeing how they formed different 'pies' we decided to explore the Autumn garden.  We saw how the berries have changed colour

We talked about the different colours and looked to see what else we could find.  I had not seen any ladybirds this year, so imagine my surprise when we saw this


There were loads of ladybirds and several baby ladybirds too.  I was so surprised and incredibly happy.  I had to get the girls not to touch them, but we sat and watched them for a while.  It was a really lovely day exploring our garden and having fun in the Autumn sun

This day I love Autumn fun.
