Splashing And Exploring

Continuing on from my last post , after the downpour and Baby G's nap we headed off out again. It was still warm and sunny but there were plenty of puddles to be splashed in. Some were quite deep.


Note the natty combo of shorts , t-shirt and wellingtons ( I have been advised that they have to have their full title!!)


The colours were so amazing and fresh, I wish I had the words or camera to describe them as they deserve - you can see how they are starting to change from Summer into Autumn.






We found rosehips that were so big and round they looked like they were about to burst


Plump and juicy berries


Deep in the undergrowth there were these mushrooms/toadstools. I really must get a book and learn more about fungi. There were also the smallest toadstools I have ever seen , I couldn't get a decent picture no matter how hard I tried.


Can you spot the heron, he's becoming a regular visitor




The water was too fast for Pooh sticks


The weather started to change again so we had decided to head off back home when Milo spotted this little tree growing out of the chimney pot


So, that was our afternoon. I hope you liked spending it with us, in my next post there will be some crafting pics ( yes I have been doing some) an award and a tag - phew
Have a lovely weekend x

I love the way little ones can take pleasure in really simple things - puddles afford hours of fun don't they? Who needs tweeting plastic toys with flashing lights? Such a lovely post and the colours are very rich - gorgeous.

Milo looks as if he is on a mission, who wouldn't be in this lovely place. It's great for everyone to be learning all about nature in these surroundings. Well done to Milo for spotting the chimney tree, and great puddle splashing being done by Baby G. x

I love those photos - splashing in puddles is always fun (perhaps I am still a child!) It rains in NY a lot and when I first got here it was clear that I would need a pair of 'wellingtons' - of I went and inquired at Bloomingdales for 'Wellies' .. they looked blank so I asked for 'Wellington Boots' where upon I was directed towards the designer shoe department. Turns out they are called Rain Boots in the US ... these guys are far too literal ;-)
