Early morning .......

Normally on a Friday morning after we have dropped Milo off at school Baby G and myself head off to toddler group where Baby G loves to cause havoc - sorry play. It's a really nice little group and everyone is really friendly. Unfortunately today we have had to give it a miss due to the dreaded cold germs that seem to be affecting us and lots of other people at the minute. I didn't think it would be fair to subject all his little friends and their parents for that matter to night times full of coughing and daytimes of non stop runny noses!!!
Instead , after saying bye to Milo we took a quick walk through the park on our way to get some milk before heading home.

This morning it was so quiet, dew drops sparkled on the grass like thousands of little diamonds and spider webs draped across branches like gossamer fairy wings.



The suns rays shone through the trees giving everything a weird kind of glow



the dew drops from the branches up high fell as though it were raining



it's hard to describe exactly what the drops looked like as they fell through the rays, like tiny rainbows as they entered which disappeared as they left



Two little squirrels ran backwards and forwards across the path in front of us, one even sat nibbling on a pine cone watching us with interest , as we watched him.



My park is set for a makeover, it has been granted a few million pounds from the lottery fund, the plans have been finalised and work will begin shortly. I know they are building fountains and have plans for sensory works of art!!! I'm scared they will spoil somewhere that is so dear to me. I will just have to watch and see how it goes.................

On a brighter note today is indeed the 26th which means ta dah - the results of my giveaway. I deliberately made sure that Milo wasn't in his jama's this time :-)



The name pulled out of the mini pan was " Retro Rose " . Congratulations Gayle I have sent you an e-mail as I need your address please.
Have a lovely weekend everyone..

Oh your photos are amazing - the light coming through those trees, it looks like you could reach out and touch it. I love autumn, it is such a sensory season - all those colours and smells, the cool damp mornings and fairy jewels on the cobwebs (Anna is still young enough to believe these stories, taking htem in with wide eyes! How much longer I wonder?)

What a magical walk through your park, fab photos, really hope they don't spoil it. I'm sure they won't and the new and improved (?) park will still hold many future happy memories for you all.

I dream of water a whole lot too. I looked it up and I think dreams of water refer to the realm of the subconscious and emotions.
