At play

Now that November has settled on us like a soft grey shawl, it’s hard to imagine that only a few short weeks ago, our world was bathed in sunlight and autumn leaves.

The beginning of October was celebrated with an adventure to the climbing tree,

Where no child was too old to fill her boots with water

Or enjoy the warmth of the old tree and the delicious chill of bare feet in cool air.

Small boys played with sticks – and shadows,

And finally, exhausted from jumping off the tree too many times,

Enjoyed the last rays of sunshine on the patchwork quilt of autumn grass.

  1. How precious is this…such fun and you captured it so well. Climbing trees is the best kind of fun…as is getting wet and laying on a blanket of grass to look up at the beautiful sky.

    Happy Monday to you and yours today. XX

  7. This is such a wonderfully playful post. I especially like the last photo. I’d love to be able to plop down on the grass and soak up the sun. It’s too cold for that now but… next year. 🙂
