Storybook land......

Hubby and I always make sure that we fit in a drive to the mountains each autumn to see the changing colour in the leaves and this year was no exception. Driving up to Mt Wilson we stopped along the way to explore this wooded area and I felt just like Alice in Wonderland as I wandered around amongst the trees and found a field of mushrooms.


Magic mushrooms or could this be where the fairies call home?


Further into the wood we found a pile of gorgeous red and gold leaves - maybe fairy blankets lying on the ground!



As we meandered along the many picturesque laneways we stumled across what could be described as the cottage belonging to the three bears.




Upon opening the door we saw a "picture perfect window" facing out onto a beautiful garden.




After all this discovering it was time to sample the fare on offer and we both opted for the homemade blueberry scones fresh out of the oven - and they were just right.




After sitting a while enjoying the log fire and sipping our coffee it was time to put on our coats, collect our brollies and head off down one of the lovely lanes back to our chariot.





A most enjoyable way to spend a misty autumn day.

What a beautiful place Karen. I can smell the air; that wonderful smell a forest gets in the mist. Thanks for sharing your lovely day.

Lovely pictures, Karen. The carpet of multicoloured leaves looks beautiful. Scones looked a " bit of alright", too! :)

Looks like a place worth visiting and warm scones is a great ending to the outing.
