A walk in the woods


Sunday was a golden day, when summer and autumn decided to play together nicely like good children. They even shared their toys; summer brought along some late butterflies and opened the last hedgerow flowers, while autumn scattered his first bright leaves and pushed up a gorgeous array of toadstools.
After a mind numbing 12 years in retail management, Andy is starting to draw again. So armed with drawing board and assorted pencil type things, we visited the local nature reserve.









I left

After
an hour or so, even I had had enough of the wonders of mycology and returned to find the first step on the road to recovery.

From one who is totally unable to have any type of creative thoughts other than in the kitchen i would consider it not a vice at all, more of a talent or gift - whichever way - Andy Mac.. outstanding!
