Nature table

Today I'm posting some more still life photos from my woodland walks last week. I've been enjoying laying out my "finds" and one end of my desk resembles a nature table at the moment













Inspired by these lovely Autumn colours of oak leaf green, warm spicy orange and leaf brown I knitted one of my loopy scarves for Gunnel's Autumn birthday last week















Such warm colours















Then, on Tuesday's walk last week, I noticed all the same colours in one tree ...















































... and a little green hedgehog?





































Have fun - kick through some leaves today ...

"Kick through some leaves today" - I love that notion. Our leaves in this area of NOrth Carolina are still on the trees, although when I look outside when it's breeze, I see some drifting down. We haven't quite changed colors yet totally.Trees are begining to turn red and yellow - but just the start.
I do love your photos Carolyn - such a wonderful eye you have. I know I tell you that alot! The scarf you knitted for Gunnel - is perfect. How funny - it looks just like the next photo of the leaves. I'm sure she will love it.

LOVE the colors that match the yarn! I am so excited about my rich, purple Carolyn scarf! I wish the weather would cool again so I could take a rosy cheeked picture for you!
I keep getting compliments on my glass necklace! It goes with all my silly clothes!
Have a wonderful day today, true one. I'm going to send you some leaves.

The yarn is lovely - lucky Gunnel! Strangely enough, I had my old copy of Country Diary out last week and appreciated it all over again.

The colors of October are so inspirational...and the colors of the scarf..perfect match. I've been out every morning watching the sun come up .. shining through...kicking leaves, turning them over then watching the dogs chase them as they stick to their tails

It´s SO VERY BEAUTIFUL! Thank you so very much my dear friend !!!!! It´s arrived today, and I love it :-))

What a GORGEOUS scarf you have knitted for your friend Gunnell, beautiful warm autumnal colours.
I'm really enjoying these lovely botanical prints and the nature finds from your woodland walks..... those berries and leaves are beautiful. I especially love the Spanish Chestnut, probably because it looks like a hedgehog and they are my favourites!
Thanks for taking us on your woodlands walks with you.
