As Autumn is upon us, I have been thinking what we can get up to now the colder days are setting in. I LOVE autumn, and I can tell already that this autumn is going to be a good one. The trees are already turning that beautiful golden shade, and I even spotted some great looking pumpkins the other day! I made a summer bucket list, which I must say I didn’t manage to complete, but I aim to do everything on this list!
This was something we did for the first time last year. And even though Oliver was only 9 months old at the time, he seemed to really enjoy it! This time we may even take daddy along too. We will either go back to Garsons in Esher, or try out Secrett’s at Milford. They’re both great places to enjoy a bit of pumpkin picking!
Apple picking and Orchard exploring
Last year we visited the RHS Wisley during their apple harvest and the apples looked amazing (and tasted it too as we bought some from their shop). We will definitely be back again to enjoy their apple harvest. I also want to find somewhere we can go apple picking, I think Garsons have apple picking, so we might head over there.
It can’t be autumn with children without hunting some conkers out can it?! Close to our local school there are an abundance of conker trees, so I know we will find some good ones!
I want to take Oliver out to find some nice autumn leaves to make something crafty with. Sometimes I feel that craft is a little neglected in our house, so my aim this autumn is to try and do a bit more! I would also like to make some stamps with apples and potatoes, I feel like it is always something a bit more wintery (although you can do it all year!).
Taking in the beauty of Autumn
There are a few places around Surrey that are meant to be stunning in the autumn months. Firstly I want to visit Winkworth Arboretum, which is always gorgeous once the autumn colours come out. The other place is Painshill Park which is also meant to be breathtaking come Autumn time.
Have you got any plans for this autumn? Let me know in the comments!
