I'm so honored to be a part of the premiere issue of Bella Grace, a new book-like publication by Stampington. This outstanding magazine celebrates the beauty of the ordinary and is devoted to discovering magic in everyday moments. I was gifted with a copy to give away as part of the Bella Grace Blog Hop! I will also add a canvas from the previous post titled Inner sight. For a chance to win, leave a comment on this post telling about your little early autumn pleasures. Comments will close on Saturday, Sept 27th. The lucky reader will be announced on the following day.
Forest walk is my daily routine. Nature nourishes, calms and inspires me constantly. The autumnal equinox is near and a harvest moon will soon shine brightly. Sometimes I think that I could be able to live in a remote hut and be a picker who can live on forest floor findings. The sky is pink and golden when we are going home with full baskets. These modest treasures are gifts of September.
Heather: I bring bunches of them and put into pots and vases. They hang tied in wreaths which I weaved during woodland picnics. A stroll through the moors makes me drift away to a Victorian atmosphere of wuthering hights.
Acorns: In scandinavian folklore they stand for strenght and good fortune. Due to their perfect shape I used to gather them for decorating purposes or to play with my children and create fairy houses as well as their tiny inhabitants.
Pinecones: I collect them in any size and kind. Similarily to acorns they are perfect for keeping in jars and making natural garlands. When heated with candles they smell of pinewood and summer days. They stand for wisdom of nature and fertility.
Mushrooms: with their vivid colours and velvet cups they are the most picturesque findings in mossy undergrowth. Poisonous dotted amanita is an ideal spot to play fairies who employ them as stools. Instead of an edible one, here comes a tasty trophy as both picking and preparing boletus with cream and herbs are among my favourite autumnal pastimes.
Cranberry: last fruit which forest bears before misty and chilling days to come. A bit sour, they joyfully shine in the first autumn sunbeams. Even if we can't find a whole basket, a handful of them is enough to feed my little girl's dinosaurs.
