Orange of all shades has been a long time favourite of mine and I enjoy wearing it all year round.
Quite by accident I had chosen my Ark duster coat in its burnt orange glory to visit an area usually known for its Spring splendour- it has the most magnificent rhododendrons.
John had read an article in the local paper while out and about this morning and decided it was just the spot for today’s photos.
We weren’t disappointed the colours were at their peak . We hadn’t been here for many years and have made a mental note to hopefully return in Spring.
Coincidentally I have been reading an article about the importance of spending time in the natural world and the enrichment it adds to out lives. A Japanese term that I rather like is shinrin-yoku
(“absorbing the forest atmosphere”) . Studies have shown how walking amongst the trees enhances health and wellbeing.
That said it certainly brings out the naughty child in me- who can resist playing in a pile of leaves.
Enjoying the view on a glorious Autumn day . Today’s outfit consists of the burnt orange Ark coat, Moyuru pants, black knit, black suede Boch shoes, orange gloves and orange hat both purchased in Paris two years ago, beads and orange earrings.
