Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Headed out especially early this morning … up to the woods … to the deer sanctuary to be specific … … well … you know, nothing in life is ever guaranteed!! … Saw some deer – in the distance … !!
Eventually we decided to walk … open ourselves up to the world of possibilities. Would have it that today was the day for many a mushroom to break into the light of day and make his appearance in the world of Epping Forest. It was truly quite incredible!! I saw mushrooms today that I never before knew existed as a species ;)
Out of all the ’shroom-shots, I just love this little “village” :)
