Autumn finds

Autumn is such a joyous season, when unexpectedly warm days feel like a gift and the riot of golds and reds turn even the most unpreposessing of trees into true beauties.

As we head towards November, despite the lingering warmth of the days, the fire is now lit in the evenings and Meg is having to be coaxed into leaving her spot by the hearth for her nightly walk.

I’d like to share with you, three things that I love this Autumn that capture the season in these last few days of October

Furoshiki Wrap Bag

I bought this gorgeous bag (expertly modelled here by my mother) from an Ashburton based potter. They were a one-off make which I am delighted to have been able to find as it has been the perfect foraging bag.

The Wheel

October is nearing its end and Samhein is fast approaching, a time when even those who live a life unconnected to nature, celebrate the pagan within. This book by Jennifer Lane explores the wheel of the year and how it connects us to the seasons. It’s worth a read if you have been feeling increasingly isolated from the natural world
