Ahhh goodbye August, hello September *panics and makes a new badge pronto*. This week I'm sharing photos from a trip to Mottisfont with Baking Betsy and kiddos and a few from a jaunt to Exbury Gardens with Kitty yesterday. There's still some big, bold colours to be seen despite the appearance of fungi and a few orange Autumn leaves.
We checked the BBC Weather app this morning, it appeared there was a 2 hour window of dry weather before the rain set in for the day. We headed out in the car, to find somewhere to walk. As we drove from Applemore towards Beaulieu Top the heather was striking, a sea of pinks and purples. We had to stop. We spied the large free Forestry Commission car park at Yew Tree Heath and pulled in before setting off to explore the heath and Bronze Age Barrow.
