Like so many others we have been enjoying some blissful late summer/early autumn weather these last few weeks. Blue skies, warm days and stunning colours all around. I’ve watched our land go full circle, from Autumn browns to monochrome snow, the green and brown of spring and the verdant greens of summer. Once more we are turning to golds and browns, the colours of my favourite season. Sometimes I can’t believe the beauty I see around me, my heart is fit to burst in those moments.
The leaves drifting down like snowflakes, gold against the impossible blue, made me laugh. Sometimes, when the world is just so beautiful, I have to laugh and celebrate it, even just for a moment.
Our land has beckoned us on walks (in between house finishing work), where we explore the changing landscape and collect everything we can get our hands on. Well some of us collect, some of us carry the collections; I’ll let you guess who does what.
At home we took time to journal our walk (I have a little pro forma I made up, I type as Huwyl dictates) and Huwyl drew a picture of an Elm leaf that he collected. He’s exploring different mediums, pencils, crayons and oil pastels for this particular drawing.
Walking, writing, drawing, colouring, spelling, talking, collecting… Autumn is here. Enjoy.
