autumn in the woods...






There is nothing better in the Cotswolds than the glorious autumnal display of the local beech woodlands. The golden leaves are an antidote to grey drizzly days and we fill our flask with hot stew and dumplings to warm us up as we walk. The boys both have Opinel safety knives which they use to take bark off sticks they find, they are a great first knife to learn with. 

Despite it being half term, we didn't see anyone else in the woods, which always surprises me as it's free entertainment! Have you signed up to Project Wild Thing yet?

  1. Such a lovely looking walk, and really rather similar to our outings! Thank you for the tip on the knife, we've been looking for a nice one for our eldest.

    1. The knives are lovely and we also have this book too http://astore.amazon.co.uk/emmabrad-21/detail/0711232415 - which makes a great gift to go with them, Emma x

  2. Lovely pictures, it was definitely a nicer day your side of the Cotswolds - its been so grey, wet and misty our side. Your flask is superb. I think I need a wide-necked one, stew and dumplings would never fit in my piddly one!

    2. No! Can you get another one? How frustrating...

  3. I love the autumnal colours, it looks like a beautiful place to go walking and for your boys to play.
