My Sunday Photo – September 30th, 2018.

A bit random this week but I’ve been loving the autumnal light and couldn’t resist having a bit of a play with the leaves and things Freya and I have collected on our walks to and from school.

To me it seems like the leaves have started changing colour earlier this year, not that I’m complaining.

We are going to plant the acorn and see if it grows.

Hope you’ve had a good week. Don’t forget to click on the camera below to see what other people have submitted for My Sunday Photo.

My Sunday Photo – September 23rd, 2018.

It’s been a bit of a dreary (not to mention windy) week in Norfolk and Freya and I got soaked for the first time this term walking home from school on Friday. As a result I thought I’d share some sunshine in the form of these sunflowers.

Mark came home from work with them, which was a lovely surprise. It just happened to be a night when there was a beautiful sunset too and I couldn’t resist getting them together.

They lasted a good while but as they were getting past their best, I decided to have a play with them. I’m always admiring flatlays on Instagram. How hard can it be, I wondered? Actually quite hard indeed when you don’t know what you’re doing.

The only one I like is this one.

I’d quite like to work it into my blog header, some how.

I hope you’ve had a sunny week.

My Sunday Photo – September 2nd, 2018.

It feels like I’ve hardly taken any dragonfly/hawker photos this year, which is odd because I think they are fascinating.

To me, it feels like they are equally intrigued by what I’m up to. This one seemed very inquisitive, buzzing around me several times for a better look.

We made friends at Earsham Wetland Centre, near Bungay, which we visited for the first time yesterday. It’s a fantastic place. As the website reveals:

Earsham has been home to a collection of native wildlife and rare breed farm animals since 1976. Our wildlife reserve is home to a wide variety of wild animals that live on the scrapes and amongst the wildflowers that surround the paddocks. Mallard, Gadwall, Shoveler, Teal and Shelduck can usually be found dabbling in the shallow lakes, being occasionally joined by Oystercatchers, Redshank, Curlew and Lapwing.

We didn’t get to stay for long because Freya added another animal to the long list of things she is now terrified of.

Meet John. A 10-week-old orphaned fawn. Adorable, right? Apparently not.

No sooner had we arrived than Freya wanted to go home. We managed to get her to stay for an ice-cream in the end but then some chickens came under the picnic table and it was game over.

Poor Freya, it must be horrible to be so frightened. It’s come on all of a sudden. Any tips on how best to help her greatly appreciated.
