Despite the distinct change in weather lately, we’ve been enjoying the great outdoors with gusto over the last week. I really do enjoy the change in weather after the summer. I get fed up of hiding out during the middle of the day, avoiding the high temperatures and blistering heat. So I get excited every year when the seasons change and beautiful autumn arrives (aside from the annoying fireworks).
This week we enjoyed some time in the Isabella plantation of Richmond Park in southwest London with my lovely mum. This is a place I have been visiting for years and love it because it is an open, green haven in the middle of a fairly built-up area. Inside Isabella plantation the green leaves had changed to gold, red and amber shades, littering the ground and transforming the place into an autumnal paradise.
We also made a little visit to a little hidden gem in southwest London called Deen City Farm, a petite farm just outside Wimbledon. The kids got a chance to say hello to the animals whilst getting a little wet in the autumn showers. All of the animals came out to say hello, except the pigs, who very wisely decided to have a lie-in inside their sty.
With all of this outdoors fun captured perfectly on my trusty camera, I could think of no better excuse than to link up with Fiona at the Coombe Mill blog for her Country Kids linky. This is the first time I’ve linked up with Country Kids, and will hopefully be one of many. Hope you enjoyed!
