Autumn is one of my favourite seasons, the colour of the leaves and the smell in the air make me happy. I love wandering through the garden, dunes and woods to collect little flowers, seeds and branches. You can find Rosehips and Sea Buckthorn near our house.
When the kids were little, I often made a Waldorf nature table for Autumn. We enjoyed searching for chestnuts, acorns and leaves in the forest. It is such a great thing to do together. Coming home and see what you have gathered at the table with a cup of tea.
Now my kids are older we don’t do that any more, but we still go out for walks. Eating pumpkin soup and drinking orange ginger tea like we used to do during this time of year. We also make jams and chutneys from harvested fruits.
Some photos of my nature finds.
Needless to say I enjoy this season very much, it also feels like a new beginning after the summer.
Hope you are inspired to go out and collect your own leaves, seeds and branches!
