I’m not too sure when these popped up in my garden, but judging by the state of the petals it might have been a while ago. I only noticed them yesterday though; they are a late summer flower and they’ve been in my mum’s garden for a couple of months now but only just come out in mine : )

(yet more) Autumn! yey!

I just cannot get enough of this autumny goodness.
As much as today was … I guess fair is a word I could use to describe it; today the weather was nice and sunny. Clear blue skies, warm! Lovely!
I set off out just before lunch to go to my favourite woods, but there was no where to park so I turned back with the intention of going back just before tea. I did think to myself as I was driving out the first time that the light was a bit, well, bright. So it worked out for the best as when I got there a bit later on I managed to snap these : )

Today is the 100th day of consecutive photo taking for me. I had planned something big, but it didn’t work out. I was really bummed out about it as I’d been excited about it all day, but I guess such is life.
What did cheer me up today was a Flickr Mail for Flickr HQ requesting 7 of my images for use on Getty Images! It’s a stock photography website, so that’s pretty cool.

When I got back into work this morning it felt like I had never left! A 12 hour day, followed by being back in work 12 hours later = meh. Add into that the fact I think I’m getting a touch of woman flu ….

Anyway; at the weekend when I took the double me shot I found some mushrooms and picked them. I put them in my bag with all my leaves (leaves now in the bird cage in the shot) and forgot about them.
I had noticed that my car was smelling a bit funky, but I didn’t really think much of it until this morning when I realised the mushrooms must be going funny! I dug around in the leaf bag (which I’d kept in my car) and they had started to go mouldy .. mmmm nice ❤

Mushrooms!

There are not enough works to fully express how much I love the season autumn (fall). I love the changing colours, nature, the early evenings (admittingly not too early…).
This year however, autumn has started off cold and for me this means worsened pain in my knee joints. I’ve been so tired too, last night for exam I wanted to go to bed at 730. I managed to hold out until 830, then decided it was indeed bed time.

I have decided to be as pro active as possible about it; keep warm, stock up on tablets and keep on doing my exercises. It is difficult to make yourself do exercise when your joints hurt though!

I’m going to start trying to make this a blog, rather than just another place where you can find my shots. To this end I am going to experiment with posting less frequently, but putting more written content in with more pictures per post.
That’s the idea anyway.

Today it’s been very cold. Apparently (so says the weather man) it’s been the average temperature for the end of October! My knees are a bit bad, due to the cold no doubt.
