A time to gratefully receive the abundance of nature’s gifts and to preserve and store summer’s warmth for cold wintery days. We give thanks to both the fruits of the harvest and all that has contributed to their becoming. To the soil, the sun, the wind, the rain, all the little insects that make the earth their home – the bees, the butter ies and caring human hands.
Autumn walks reveal the true gifts of nature. A time for collecting colourful leaves, acorns, nuts and seeds. Crafts Through the Year by Thomas & Petra Berger, is full of wonderful ideas to transform collected treasures into pine cone owls, acorn snakes, bee mobiles, autumn garlands and flower and leaf pressing.
