Autumn is my favorite season. I like the way it changes. Everything changes, the trees get naked and every fragrance changes day by day.
I like to walk in the fallen leaves. Jump in and throw them away.
I like it when my breath is visible in the cold air.
Candles in the dark. Look at how the birds sit in lines and then fly south.
And I like the smell of wet fallen leaves. In this season, the smell of dust is different even after the rain. Seeing the first rimy leaf on the cold ground. Autumn makes me happy.
I love to see the world around me change and slowly fall asleep to come back to life in the spring.
And it’s time to watch the birds on the patio or in the garden with a warm cup of tea.
And now is the time to pull on the warm wool socks.
I love the mosses under the fallen leaves.
And lichen branches all over the ground.
At this point, I feel complete peace and almost nothing exists. Neither the rush nor the things I should have to do. It feels a very safe feeling.
I like to look at the birds, so from the middle of autumn to the end of winter I make food for them.
I love the last strong sunbeams on my face. I want to enjoy every moment before winter comes and nobody knows when the sun will shine again. Waiting for days, weeks, months.
This is the last time I pick a dose of herbs.
Yarrow, Nettle, Oxalis….
It was one of the last days of autumn when I can collect herbs. Maybe the last time this year.
I’ll dry them like that, I’m getting ready for the winter.
