there’s no denying that winter is creeping up on us like an unwanted visitor and i don’t like it one bit.

having missed the cold snap last year, thanks to a secondment in la, i have been dreading the harshest of seasons.

a rare day of sunshine last weekend did not only come as a welcome break from the dreary wet weather, but it also reminded me of just how beautiful britain can be in the autumn.horse in a field, heaton park, heaton park, horse in a field in heaton park, peanutbuttered.com, peanut buttered,horse in a field, heaton park, horse in a field, heaton park, horse in a field in heaton park, peanutbuttered.com, peanut buttered, peanutbuttered.com, peanut buttered

as i was staying back home with my parents, we decided to go for a late afternoon family stroll in heaton park.

armed with a bag of carrots, we arrived just in time to make the most of the beautiful sunshine at the end of the day.

we made our way around the park and up to heaton hall, a building dating back to the 18th century, which boasts impressive views for many miles, particularly on a clear day.

given i’m usually battling with an umbrella on any trip home it was so lovely to get outside win such glorious weather. there really is something wonderful about the rustling of crunchy golden leaves underfoot.

i hope you enjoy my snaps as much as i enjoyed taking them! view of manchester from heaton park, heaton park, view from the lodge at heaton park, peanutbuttered, peanutbuttered.com
