"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn't it?"
~ Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery ~
Nature walks are a daily part of our lives. Sometimes they are close to home, sometimes we drive for a bit to reach a special place. There are times we just wonder and let nature guide us and there are times when we head out searching for something in particular.
Yesterday Reece and I headed to one of our favourite spots to look for signs of autumn. It was a beautiful morning and autumn really wasn't that hard to find.
~ beautiful maple leaves, falling gracefully from the trees
~ friendly chipmunks filling up their little cheeks and storing food for the long winter ahead
~ the squirrels must think there is a long winter coming because they are not usually this friendly
~ the chickadees have returned to our little part of the world, such a fun little bird
~ trails covered in golden leaves, and a few hanging out on tree trunks
~ incredible birdsong from a variety of birds, it was so loud we actually had to turn up the volume when we spoke...amazing!
It was a very magical morning with my little man, one that filled us up and left a smile on our faces.
