Autumn colours, peace and quiet

IMG_4572Autumn colours embraced our journey through Somerset and North Devon during the last week in October. This hillside, with its mystrious zigzag up between the trees, begged to be explored…

the mossy stones and endless flow of water at Watersmeet helped wile away an afternoon with my paints:IMG_4590

IMG_4589This was just a beginning – the next few days were a feast of colour, sights, sounds and fresh sea air – all in temperatures way too high for the time of year – but who was complaining?

A wonderful week – now, back to the grindstone – but refreshed and inspired!


About apthomas

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset. I am enslaved by Sherpa-the-cat. Saturday mornings find me 'playing shop' in the Honey Pot - a second hand bookshop, run from my garage, where along with the books you'll find fun, friendship and refreshments - all in a good cause.

    Thanks, Nan – yes, the softness of the shades was a delight – difficult to capture in paint. More pics soon.
