I love autumn. It might have something to do with my birthday. I cannot resist the rich pallette, changing colours and all shades of yellow, orange, red, burgundy and brown. I cannot resist the abundance of wild findings. I like how crisp mornings turn into warm afternoons. The sun might have a lie-in and an early bed time but its midday rays surely can recharge the batteries. Autumn is a powerful wizard.
Mushrooms usually just happen on the way. The more intensely you search the less you find. On the other hand as my mum always said:
Mushrooms like company. If there’s one, there’ll be more.
Eat-me mushrooms have pores underneath their cap.
Eat-me-not mushrooms can be pretty too.
I always pick wild blackberries when I see them. I get a handful and share. Straight from the palm of my hand.
When I was a little girl I used to pick ronanberries and thread them like beads to make a necklace.
Glistening in the sun are omnipresent spiderwebs.
I absolutely adore heather. Inside the house. Outside the house. Along the paths. On the hills. I can never get enough.
And you have you found your perfect autumn?
