Autumn Walks and Wild Flowers 27.10.2014

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.

Autumn Walks and Wild Flowers

Hello there!!
A big thank you for all of the lovely comments I received on my last post. It really means a great deal hearing from each and everyone of you! Today was a truly magnificent day! An Autumn day with a rather fresh breeze and a glorious dose of sunshine. Nothing I enjoy better than a clear blue sky and a strong fresh air to clear my mind.
Instead of heading into the city (as I usually do on my day off), Dennis and I decided to go for a nice long walk, armed with our cameras.
It was rather tremendous! With the sun shining and the leaves changing shades and falling from the trees, everything appeared to be gleaming a rather yummy caramel colour.

The ducks were splashing about, enjoying the day as much as I was!

With a little exploring the dried out remains of Summer could still be found.

We spotted the crisp remains of the sunflower fields, along with glimpses of dried out corn that hadn't been harvested. That shade of yellow is rather amazing, like gem stones!

Yes the remains of Summer could be seen! But Autumn was bringing it's own fresh delights. Bright magenta berries...

Vibrant flowers....

and nothing reminds me more of Autumn than a big bold pumpkin!

It was a lovely walk, it really was! On our way home we stopped of at a field close to out apartment. It is a flower field, where you can cut your own bunches of flowers and pay for the flowers you have cut. A rather fabulous idea, if you ask me!

There was a knife lying at the entrance of the field so you could easily chop the flowers you so desired.

Despite it being colder, there were still a lot of very gorgeous flowers growing in the field!

Dennis and I picked a small bunch of pretty flowers and placed our money in the slot at the entrance to the field.

What a beautiful bunch of flowers we have! So vibrant, with great variety to the different types of flowers. Far better than buying from the supermarket!

They look rather lovely at home and bring a warmth to the darkening days.

I'm a big fan of this time of year, even if it makes me feel like hibernating under my duvet all day long!!! Hope you are all having the most glorious Autumny week!
