autumn flowers

So autumn is well and truly here now. There is a definite chill in the air, the conkers are falling to the delight of the children and I've been contemplating putting the heating on.

I'm also thinking about log fires, harvest festivals, pumpkins, crunchy leaves in shades of russet and ochre. And of course, before we know it, it'll be halloween.

I finally had enough light to photograph the first earrings since the beginning of the holidays, the colours of which remind me of Alys Fowler. Hopefully she would approve ..

What things do you associate with autumn?


  1. Gosh that is a difficult one - I guess for me it is the smell.

    Warmth, yet fresh, earthy and homely - Autumn has a certain aroma for me.

    Love the earrings - I'm sure she would approve.

    Autumn for me is conkers and sweet chestnuts, wood smoke and falling leaves, at least in an ideal world! This one seems to be mainly about rain :(

  14. Hi, I found you through Diane.
    I love your jewellery.
    I associate the lovely varied colours of the leaves with autumn and the autumnal smells, but also home cooking- soups and cakes especially. I've been making a lot of cakes of late needless to say!


There's nothing like a comment to stop me feeling like I'm talking to myself. If you leave one here I'll pop one back here too, so don't forget to come back and continue the conversation ..
