Sunday Sevens // 39 2015

Seven days, seven photos. Visit Nat for the lowdown on how you can take part next week. 

It’s that point in the term when I’m eating, sleeping, and breathing school. I was extremely doubtful I’d have anywhere near 7 photos for this week, but thanks to a few walks when I’ve enjoyed the autumnal weather here I am. I’d like to say ‘normal’ service will resume next week, but looking at the diary, it’s doubtful! 

1.  A misty morning which showed off how busy the spiders had been overnight. 

 2.  So many signs of Autumn around now; blackberries, elderberries, rose hips, acorns and conkers. 

 3.  I took this because of the horse/horse chestnut combo. It amused me, anyway! 

 4.  Managed to take this with the dogs growling at the swans and the swans hissing at the dogs. 

 5.  Lit the gas fire for the first time! Partly to dry the dogs after their bath and partly to take the chill of a grey afternoon. 

 6.  Came across this online, it always surprises me that black dogs are overlooked, especially as my Wilfie was a rescue and he turned out to be such a sweetheart. 

 7. Spotted this street name whilst out walking. 

 You’ll notice a lack of sewing, shopping, and outings, other than dog walks, in this week’s post. I feel like I’m still playing catch up after the France trip so am busy getting back into the swing of it all. I’m enjoying watching the season change and am noticing differences each time I walk. Leaves have started falling from the trees and there (randomly)  seem to be a lot of bats about! 

What signs of Autumn have you noticed? And have you collected any of them for decorative or tasting purposes?

    Those are wonderful pictures–the spider web one is just amazing! And love the dogs in front of the heater; in my house, we get both cats lounging in front of the gas fireplace. I’m glad you’ve been able to find some spare time to get outside to enjoy the weather. It’ll be gray and soggy soon enough. 😉

    You’ve managed to take some beautiful pictures this week! Particularly the first two. Isn’t it annoying when work gets in the way of sewing? I’m having similar issues at the moment!

  4. Your photos are even more stunning than usual this week – the swan one is amazing! We’ve definitely been making the most of the hedgerow bounty, although I wish I’d picked more elderberries and blackberries for the freezer:)

  6. Beautiful images, particularly like the cobweb, I can never catch them this sharply! Autumn is my favourite time of year too, so pretty and colourful, and I also kind of like retreating a bit 🙂

Yesterday I spent most of the day at this beautiful old hotel. It even had a doorman. •
#manchester #hotel #conference #christmas #christmastree #traditional Today I travelled to a conference in Manchester, and whilst exploring the local area came across an extremely festive German Christmas market. •

#run #running #rungry #runuptoChristmas #weekend #dogjog #runningwithdogs #runnersofinstagram Up and out early this morning, transporting players to a football match in the middle of the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside. The sun shone so brightly it was hard to see, but that’s not something to complain about this far into November. The team played well and they won 🙌🏼
