The stuff fairy tales are made of...

We got to our park early this morning. The slides were still spotted with raindrops and dew, the swings carried small pools of last night's rain and the damp wood chips clung to our socks. We took time to explore under the trees where we'd been only days ago. Our delightful red mushrooms had disappeared. However, as we travelled a little further around the woods surrounding the park we discovered another amazing sight! A new mushroom, or toadstool as Miss Daisy was calling them. I'm not sure exactly what they were, perhaps I should search and see. Whatever they were they have a certain kind of magic!

Once again thankful that our park is only 50 metres from the house, we strolled home for the camera and a towel to dry off the park! Armed with both, Miss Daisy set about exploring the park and I captured some beautiful shots of another amazing Autumn day!

I just can't get enough of the colour that surrounds our place at this time of year! And I love that this year Miss Daisy is noticing it all. Asking questions and remembering details. "The leaves are changing colour and falling off some of the trees" "It's because it's Autumn." Well, it is in Australia" 
We've pressed leaves, collaged, painted and sketched. There is just so much you can do with an abundance of leaves dropping each day! Not to mention just lay under the trees and have them rain down over you. Best.

And this. This is almost finished! One year of bathing our girls in a plastic tub and we have a beautiful new (gumtree/eBay) bathroom that my amazing hubby (et al) made!! Hooray!
So now that I've uploaded my delightful photographs, I'm off to soak in that tub whilst Miss Daisy and her Daddy are out on a special Daddy/daughter date!
How are your Autumn days?
Or are you enjoying the first glimpses of Spring!?
