Autumn has really taken hold in the woodland now. Almost all the leaves have fallen and a carpet of burnt orange covers the floor.
The weather is still dry enough that the leaves crackle beneath your feet and fly into the air if you scuff them up as you walk. The dogs tennis ball is regularly lost under the carpet and she snuffles around trying to find it in both an excited and frustrated way.
It is time for us to really crack on with clearing paths and gathering fire wood. With the foliage gone from the trees and the bracken all dying back it is easier to move around and deal with felled trees as they have no canopy to add to the clearing up.
We want to clear an area for a new workspace / studio and another area to plant fruit trees next year so watch this space as these areas develop.
