More from our Brogdale orchard visit yesterday. I’ve never seen so many apples in my life, and the work they do to preserve the different varieties is fascinating. #brogdale #apples #autumnharvest #appletrees #nationalfruitcollection #kent #thesimplethings #orchard #autumnorchard #natureismychurch #escapetothecountry #fall #faversham #seasonal #fruit #livingwiththeseasons @brogdale_collections

Anyone else spend the day traipsing around the world’s largest selection of apple tree varieties? Just me then. Who knew they grew this shiny?! #brogdale #apples #autumnharvest #appletrees #nationalfruitcollection #kent #thesimplethings #orchard #autumnorchard #natureismychurch #escapetothecountry #fall #faversham @brogdale_collections

Happy weekend! I’m going on my first bouldering lesson today. Yes, I’m aware it’s Friday the 13th. Wish me luck. #surrey #walk1000miles2017 #walk1000miles #autumn #autumnwalk #hike #hiking #outdoors #getoutdoors #nature #natureismychurch #escapetothecountry #seasons #fall #fallleaves

My first ever zinnia! I had a spare patch of container that I sowed this into, about a month later than I should have, and it seems to have worked, with a first flower in October 😂 This is Salmon Rose from @floretflower. #growfloret #floretseeds #floretflowers #growyourown #balconygarden #containergarden #containergardening #growsomethinggreen #curated_nature #natureismychurch #homegrown #zinnia #salmonrose #flowers #autumnflowers #autumnharvest

I went to Paris for work today - there and back in 12 hours, but not so quickly that I didn’t have time to stop and take a photo of this gorgeous flower shop. #paris #jaimeparis #flpwers #flowershop #autumn #touristforaminute #eurostar #11tharrondissement #worktravel #autumnharvest #curated_nature #thesimplethings #natureismychurch #accidentaltourist #france

A Herdwick lady on Helm Crag at the end of August - just before we found a recently deceased one, which was significantly less picturesque... #lakedistrict #lakeland #walk1000miles2017 #walk1000miles #hike #hiking #outdoors #lakeland #fromlakelandwithlove #fells #mountains #hills #thelakelanders #nature #natureismychurch #getoutside #landscape #landscapeview #worthaclimb

‘SLOW’ - F called this word in the road a sign from the universe. Given that we were walking in the Devil’s Punch Bowl, who knows who the message was actually from 😂 In any case - it chimes nicely with what I have now deemed Project Hamstrong (not a typo); the slow and steady putting the work in to get my leg back up to full fitness. - I’m sat on the sofa today - a day after yesterday’s hike - and I’m thrilled, cause my legs are fine. This is the first of the three hikes I’ve undertaken after my dismissal from the osteopath that hasn’t resulted in my hamstring symptoms coming back with a vengeance. We did our last few miles at a 16 minute/mile pace to make our dinner reservation on time. My Fitbit tells me the hike was longer than it should have been (I was aiming for sub 10km, but did 13-14 instead all told). It wasn’t a flat walk. Yet I’m OK. - I’ve been really diligent about doing my sports rehabilitation exercises this week - which I’ve found hard to fit in since I’ve been back at work. It seems it works, if you put the work in. Slowly.

Back late from a great afternoon hiking around the Devil’s Punch Bowl in Surrey, followed by dinner at a Haslemere pub and the slowest train back to London, by way of Staines.

A walk in the woods (last weekend) - and I’m already planning next weekend’s outing. A hike that is truly < 10km this time, to give my hamstring a break. Previous attempts have gone over by a significant margin, so wish me luck! #walk1000miles2017 #walk1000miles #surrey #guildford #nature #hiking #hike #outdoors #natureismychurch #escapetothecountry #intothewoods #trees #autumn #getoutside #countryside #countrywalk #curated_nature #allthingsgreen

The very first bits of autumn colour in these beech trees. Anyone else planning to go for a hike every weekend until the trees are bare? #walk1000miles2017 #walk1000miles #guildford #hike #hiking #nature #outdoors #countryside #countrywalk #surrey #autumn #seasons #curated_nature #beech #trees #autumnleaves #compton #guildfordtocompton #natureismychurch #escapetothecountry #getoutside

Not a bad place for lunch, yesterday. The trees on the far side were starting to turn to autumn colours. Impossible to capture on an iPhone, but stunning in person. #walk1000miles2017 #walk1000miles #hike #hiking #outdoors #nature #autumn #seasons #getoutside #natureismychurch #escapetothecountry #countryside #countrywalk #surrey #guildford #compton #guildfordtocompton #englishautumn #trees #oak

It’s the weekend, and nearly time for another walk. I’ve devised a modification of a fairly short Guildford walk I like, taking out the steep bits to give my hamstring a break. Can’t wait! #londonloop #londonloop1 #walk1000miles #walk1000mikes2017 #hike #hiking#london #outdoors #nature #natureismychurch #countrywalk #countrywalking #countryside

The ruins of Corfe Castle in August, with tiny humans for scale. How the weather has changed... Still, should be clear and reasonably warm this weekend - perfect walking weather! #dorset #corfecastle #ruins #castle #history #visitbritain #purbeck #holiday #summer #nationaltrust

From the summit of Helm Crag. There was a slight chill in the air in the Lakes the week I took this photo, but it's proper central heating on time now. I say bring on the Autumn colours. #lakedistrict #lakeland #fromlakelandwithlove #thelakelanders #helmcrag #walk1000miles #walk1000miles2017 #hike #hiking #outdoors #hills #fells #fellwalking #mountains #natureismychurch #grasmere
