HDYGG 124: Looking Closer

pod

Hooray for sedums and the last of the hydrangeas! Hooray for the overly optimistic sunflower! Hooray for red and yellow leaves standing loud and proud on the branches of mainly green trees! Hooray for the fallen acorns! Hooray for the carpets of fallen leaves beneath trees! Hooray for the fungi poking up!

There is so much to love about this time of year. It's easy to start to fall in the lull of 'Summer has gone' and thoughts of the overly brown and grey months ahead. Heck I know as well as any the struggles of holding together a HDYGG post in the bleak mid-Winter. But this change into Autumn is as colourful as the change from Spring to Summer, there are some riots of colour out there to discover.

These past few weeks on HDYGG have been so interesting for me, seeing Emma , Gemma and Rosie's home-growing journeys reward them greatly, Ness and Stephanie continue to discover new places, Suzanne battle on against the elements and Claudia move states. Inspiring women and inspiring times. This week I have been stealing moments to get outdoors and look a little closer at what's around me. Not as much time as I would have hoped but a little is better than none...

Some faves from last week include: Sam's pumpkin patch ( not a euphemism),  Gemma's one and only,  the garden surrounding Kriss, Autumnal reds from Clare and Amanda's colour fest

I'm off and away today on a fungi foray, as you do and in Devon most of the weekend, so here's the linky, like back in the olden days!
