I love autumn. It’s not even the middle of September yet and I’ve gone autumn mad! I’ve already bought autumnal themed books, clothes, made fall scented playdough, went blackberry picking and made a delicious blackberry crumble.

This weeks #mysundayphoto is of Evie and I blackberry picking. I love how she is sneakily eating from the bowl as I’m concentrating on loading it up. It took us so long to fill the bowl because she was busy filling her belly.

Blackberry picking is my favourite fall activity and is something my family have done every year since I was small. It was so lovely to takeΒ my daughter this year. Although at one point we were joined by a chicken! Which I found a little bit terrifying. You can read more about that in my post: blackberry picking with a chicken!

I hope you’ve all had a great week too!

    I love picking too. C never used to like them but the girls LOVE them!

      They can be a bit bitter and sour sometimes can’t they. If C doesn’t like them, you can always squash them down and use them for painting! πŸ˜€ x

    Lovely photo. Amelia loved fruit picking in the summer so she would love this too! Love it when these moments are captured xx

      She would love this! Just be mindful of the brambles and stinging nettles. Although the little hands are batter than the big clumsy mummy hands at reaching for the blackberries without being stung. x

    Lovely photo!! I haven’t done any fruit picking yet but I would love to do that at some point. I’m sure my girls will love it!

      You should definitely try it at some point in autumn. Making crumbles with the pickings is so easy and so tasty too. πŸ™‚ x

      haha they’re so more-ish aren’t they. We couldn’t get over how many Evie ate. She refused her dinner two hours later. x
