Today was a rainy day, but my friend and I put on our coats and boots and went out for an Autumnal walk!
We had planned to walk in the woods but in the end we didn’t have time to go to our planned location. Instead, we walked around the outskirts of the town where we had met for lunch.
It was amazing how many Autumnal things we could find so close to town – along footpaths, alleys and in a churchyard. I will share some of the photos we took.
Our walk, in photos
First, we walked across a bridge over a large pond. The trees around the pond were starting to change colour.
We saw lots of berries on our walk. These ones were growing next to the pond:
These bright red berries were in a hedge outside someone’s house:
We walked along a footpath, beneath some trees. A lot of the trees we saw on our walk were still green, but quite a few were starting to change colour, including this one:
We found a tiny conker…
… and a miniature apple!
The footpath led into a churchyard. There were lots of fallen leaves on the ground, including this one which we thought was an interesting shape:
We walked through crunchy leaves! I say crunchy, but they were actually a bit soggy because it was raining.
The colourful trees made the churchyard very atmospheric.
We saw these Cyclamen growing underneath a tree. They don’t look very Autumnal, but this is the time of year when they flower so they do remind me of Autumn. I think they look like little pink butterflies!
As we walked back towards the town centre, we came across a house that was completely covered in this plant. It looked very dramatic because some of the leaves were turning a bright red.
Later in our walk we came across this path, looking very Autumnal with the fallen leaves.
An atmospheric Autumnal walk
Even though it was raining, we enjoyed our walk and could really feel an Autumnal atmosphere. It was wonderful to be surrounded by nature and colourful trees. I hope to go for more walks this month, in different locations, and watch as the trees continue to change colour and drop their leaves.
Have you been for any walks lately? Did it feel Autumnal outside? What is your favourite setting to walk in – do you prefer the woods, beach, town, or somewhere else? Let me know in the comments!
