Colour crush...

Is it officially autumn now we've hit September?
Todays colour crush palette is right up there for me as a new favourite fall combo.
It's that deep wine tone with peach, ochre and terracotta hues, and that little hit of blue.
And there goes that brick colour again, sneaking in. Can’t resist.

Colour crush...

It's starting to feel quite autumnal here in the UK.
The days are getting cooler following what's probably been the hottest summer in quite some years.
The darker nights will be setting in soon and out come the cozy socks and chunky knitwear.

Here's a little colour crush post that's definitely got that fall vibe...

Cool Summer...

We've definitely been having somewhat of a heatwave here in the UK over the past couple of months.
I know it will soon come to an end and the rain will ensue, (we've already had a few downpours this week)
but until then, lets continue to make the most of these glorious days of summer...

On my bookshelf... The Night Flower

'The Night Flower' is written and illustrated by Lara Hawthorne, and tells the story of the Saguaro Cactus, found in the Sonoran desert. The flowers of the cactus are special because they only bloom once a year, and for this short period, attract an abundance of wildlife, large and small.

This wonderful book is a celebration of that very night, and Lara captures it beautifully with her delicate and detailed illustrations.
Woodpeckers, bees, squirrels and lizards all leap and dance from far and wide to see the special event...

"...its white velvet petals unfurl and reach high, and a thick fruity fragrance fills the night sky"

Little ones can also play along with the 'Did you spot...?' feature to be found at the end of the story where they can look our for Bobcats, mice and grasshoppers.

Here are a few favourite pages...

Visiting the Lake District...

Last month we spent a lovely week in the Lake District. We enjoy holidays abroad, but let’s face its, you can’t beat a UK break when the weather's in your favour, and it’s nice to have a holiday with the fluffy ones.

We’ve been to Cumbria a few times now and have visited many of the usual haunts, so we were keen to explore some different areas of this beautiful part of the world.
We chose to stay further north, and booked a lovely holiday cottage near Penrith surrounded by rolling hills and fields and plenty of exceptionally vocal sheep.
Our mornings were very often spent deciphering their conversations!

We headed to Coniston, Ambleside and Pooley Bridge, took a journey on a Loco to Haverthwaite, witnessed glorious waterfalls at Aira Force and drove the winding roads of Kirkstone Pass and around Ullswater, but top of my 'to see' list was Buttermere, and I have to say, I definitely left a little piece of my heart there. 
This place is something else, truly. 
After a lovely lunch at Skye Farm Tea Rooms, we headed off to walk the 4.5 miles around Buttermere Lake, stopping to meet the local sheep on route, and a little toe dipping. 
It’s such a calm and tranquil place with the most breathtaking views around the lake. We’ll definitely be visiting again that’s for sure!

And it wouldn’t be a trip to the Lake District without a quick stop in Grasmere to pick up some sought after gingerbread, yum!
