Autumn has never really been a time of year that I have appreciated before. In the past, autumn has always marked the end of summer, with colder weather and dark nights drawing in. This year however, the leaves seem to be brighter, and the trees have a greater mix of colours. It also hasn’t been quite as wet as I remember other years being, which always makes it more enjoyable! Anyway, when James last came to visit we decided to make the most of the autumn (and my new car!) and head to Acorn Bank National Trust property for a day out in the cool air.
