Textures of a Kernow fall.
Textures are often omitted when we admire and appreciate the delights of autumn / fall every year. Whilst wandering with the dog in woods this week, I found some marvellous mosses, seeds, berries, fungi everywhere and the changes from summer are striking.
Mosses turn into new adventurous multi-coloured shapes that stand out. Fungi grows and we merrily pick and eat the ones we know that are safe and love. Not too sure I’d eat the one below …
Berries like raspberries and blackberries ripen and provide plenty of pudding materials together with apples. Nature provide such a rich and varied source of foods and we only use a small percentage. Processed and prepared foods seem to have overtaken us. Foraging and eating under open skies is becoming more popular again and I can understand why. Courses can give us an education in what to pick and after that how to prepare locally sourced ingredients. So, isn’t it funny how foraged food taste so much better enjoyed in ‘Mother Nature’.
Mum’s linen cupboard.
In mum’s linen cupboard it always smelled of lavender – fresh and nice. I have learned that lavender is used for helping with good sleep and relaxation. No wonder it was so widely used and appreciated. When dried, it is certainly easily tied into a handkerchief or made into a small ‘cushion’ to place where suitable for You.
Heather and moss.
Heather sets off in the autumn and provide brilliant displays of colours. It is as if the texture changes for the time.
The mix of colours in the photo below blew me away! That is to say green grasses and the bright heather on top!
As we walked past an old tree, I spotted the moss on a branch. It was sprouting spores to extend it’s territory and as a result, in the sunshine they looked like hairs.
For a view of a local sandy beach with gorgeous blue tones waters during last week, check it out! Along this coast line I found some beautiful flowers too:
These are more gentle in their colours than the next lot of succulents:
