Overhead the golden yellow and orange leaves fill our view blocking out the sky in the riot of autumn colour. The forest is on fire, completely a glow causing a golden light to filter down through the trees in dappled beauty all around.
Following the country lane winding through the forest, dried leaves crunch and rustle underfoot as we pass. Birds flit by in sing song voices and a gentle breeze flows through the trees bringing wafting scents of musty earth and rooting wood. A fairyland place to explore, hidden from the bustling world and noisy traffic, out of the way, just nature and us to admire it.
