Remember how I spent my lunch break a few weeks ago wandering through Machattie Park and checking out the begonias – OK it was nearly 6 weeks ago!! Well, at the end of that post I mentioned kicking leaves in the park as a kid. Now is the perfect leaf kicking time.
On Saturday, I had to duck into town and when I saw how lovely the park looked in the sunshine I couldn’t resist calling in.
How beautiful is this.
I couldn’t catch a decent photo of it, but the leaves were gently fluttering to the ground in the slightest breeze.
The best bit, though, was seeing kids and their parents playing in the leaves. It is such a simple thing and I hope they have fond memories of those times as they grow older, as I do. I’m not sure who was having the most fun here, the little fellow or his mum. The both looked so very happy.
Yes, I did kick some leaves around too. You never grow out of that.
Aaah, I love autumn.
