October was a good month and we achieved so much.  

Not all was captured on lens, but apart from the mist, which is a bugger to portray on film - unless you're above the clouds or can see it visible lifting, swirling around your feet then I always struggle. But rest assured there was mist and we found ourselves 'out and about' in it quite a lot in October. The frizz in my hair is testament to that.

Here's what we achieved ::

• We foraged for nuts.

• Took misty walks and chased the light.

• Went to a bonfire celebration and made many campfires.

• Made a wreath from forage foliage.

• Scrunched leaves and walked in the woods.

• Preserved nature and collected conkers.

• Toasted marshmallows and carved pumpkins.

Soup was neglected off this list but 'blimey' what a warm and balmy October it was.  And chestnuts 'alas' were not to be found.  I haven't located the best foraging spots...yet.

Not bad though for a month filled with an uncertain future, organising, planing, putting in place and packing!

Here's to October.  You did us proud.
