Berries and seeds on the lane and fruit on an old crab apple tree.........





































This evening the rain stopped and it was light. The sun shone on the corner of a field and I saw what I thought were golden flowers in the distance. When I got up closer I saw that they were apples which had bent the tree so far that a large branch had broken off. The light and the variety of fruit on the hedgerows distracted me from the burden of a hard days work. I found myself wishing that I could be out in the fields more of the time but was cheered by the rare beautiful evening warmth.

Work life balance is proving to be a bit of a challenge at the moment, how do you manage it?

  4. As always, I love looking at your photos - always so soothing. I know what you mean about work/life balance. There are never enough hours in the day and certainly none to just enjoy life!

  5. I always struggle with the shortening days as i get less time outdoors spent with my critters or out in the countryside. But I've read some lovely suggestions for engaging my hands more during the Autumn/Winter months in taking up new crafts & , perhaps more importantly, actually embracing the natural lessons of Autumn. For example by going into a mini hibernation (keeping lights low in the evenings, eating only seasonal foods & keeping the thermostat down) you are actually doing what your body really want you to & are likely to feel better. xx
