I Spy in the Autumn

As the nights come ever earlier and the weather becomes greyer, it can be tempting to drag all the pillows in the house onto the sofa, grab snacks and hibernate until spring.

However, there’s still lots of beauty to be seen outdoors. Windy weather means nature crafting materials galore. And there’s so much more to enjoy. Try spotting these.

Taking nuts to a park and feeding squirrels is ace autumn fun. Don’t let them near your fingers though. They may look cute but their teeth can break a nutshell…

An Acorn

Look at a dandelion properly. Chances are, you’ve missed their beauty. They’re lovely even as they turn to clocks. Try drawing one at both stages to appreciate it.

There’s loads more to see too. I’m trying to find all The Lost Words in photographic form. Join in if you want more things to spot outdoors.
