Autumn Colours

It’s Friday again so it’s Photo Challenge time, today’s theme is Autumn, which is quite fitting with the wind and rain we’ve had over the last couple of days. Hopefully I’ll find some nicer autumn images to share with you…

A couple of years ago my friend and I went to Thorp Perrow Arboretum, the autumn colours were beautiful.

An early autumn walk round Bolton Abbey with the trees just starting to turn.

I’ve just finished this in time, the autumn side of my Tall Year Square Etui. I didn’t have the recommended threads so I just chose colours that mean autumn to me.

Tall Year Square Etui

This was actually last year, but it  could have been today with the rain!! There’s been a couple of changes since then, two lilac trees fell down (you can just about make out the lean on one of them! The laburnum next-door which we enjoyed was sadly taken down to make room for the big fence and the obelisk by the patio collapsed – well it was pretty old…I really must get round to making a new one!

Rain!

A sneak preview of our walking holiday photos! The hedgerows were absolutely laden with fruit, I don’t think I’ve ever seen them so full, hawthorn and rosehips here, but also sloes, blackberries, rowan, crabapples…

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    You’ve shown gorgeous colors here. Our leaves are just starting to turn here, although many have already fallen. Your stitchwork is really pretty too.
