A Walk in the Woods Kind of Day!

Hello friends
Yesterday was a cold, bright and sunny day - a perfect day for visiting Bella Woods.  
Flowery wellies were the order of the day!
 Autumn has certainly arrived, so much so Bella blends in!
She is sporting her new collar - she has a tendency to lose them in the woods when
chasing squirrels, bunnies and green parrots - yes, they are nesting in these woods!
The sunlight peeking through the trees.
Sadly, the recent storm inflicted some damage.
This tree had split in half ...
and here is the top section of it now laying in the farmer's field.
This is where we exit the woods and venture back into the sunlight across land....
This is the exact same spot back in August (minus a Bella in the photo!)
I love seeing how the seasons change our surroundings.
Thank you for your lovely supportive comments yesterday.
It is always a tonic to take a good walk and another nice thing is...
today is my birthday!  The boys and I are off to the Harry Potter Studios...
yes again.  I'm not sure who is the biggest fan, I think it might be me!
I promise photos to follow.

Take care friends.

Morning Christine, Happy Birthday to you, I hope your day is lovely at Harry Potter World.
The piccies of the woods are fabulous especially the one where the sunlight is filtering through, very magical. I especially loved the comparison shots one now and one in August.
Have a fabulous day, y'all.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Many Happy Returns Christine - I do hope you have a lovely day.

It's really sunny here today (in Ireland) but the wind is biting, so I won't be venturing out today.

SusanP, Kent said...

Hi Christine. What lovely countryside you have nearby and some super photos. My fave is the Autumn view through to the open fields. Happy Birthday!

Lacelady said...

Mrs B said...

Happy Birthday Christine. Wishing you many happy returns of the day. I hope you all have a great day at Harry Potter studios. Love the pics. Those woods look lovely. A walk in somewhere like that really does you good, both mentally and physically doesn't it! Mother nature is all upside down this year though isn't she.The leaves would normally be off of most of the trees and bushes by now. There are still loads yet to fall around our area too.It looks more like early/mid Oct still. I just hope it doesn't mess the wild animals and birds up too much. Anyway, best wishes again. Take care.
