♍ you know it's autumn when... ♍

framing my sky
It's time to take the summer canopy down and pack away the bunting...
The sky is still wide and blue but I'm off on my annual jaunt to Turkey and I'm not sure 
the weather is going to be as pretty as this when I return...
So I pack away the summer into the drawer under my bed and 
not wish too much time away until I can retrieve it all...
taking down the flags
After all, I love the autumn and a chance to catch up on my crochet, 
my stove and my reading..
I think I achieve more in the winter months, longer evenings..
a sense of time drifting.
I bought this lined basket at the boot fair yesterday to store my wool in..
My wool was kept in a shoe box waiting for the right thing to appear.
Ta daaaaaa. £2. 
woollen picnic
I also bought this pretty book for 50 pence. I cannot resist a lovely looking book
even though I am as musical as a row of green ten bottles sitting and falling off a wall.
musical monthly
And I know it's Autumn when my lawn is dotted with fungi.
I feel very drawn to these otherworldly beings.
I'm going to sketch them just so I can determine their structures.


spores on breath

upside of longing
I'm bound to have some lovely images from Turkey to share with you..so I'll be back soon.
Enjoy these late summer days. They are sweet and bitter.
I'm off to eat figs and gaze at mountains.

I love all the different mushrooms. I noticed some on my lawn yesterday too-I love them! I have a book of mushrooms and they have such great names. The book is a lovely green-I have the same problem as you-can't resist! Hope you have a lovely time in Turkey!

Wow, Turkey! I hope you have a great time and that the sun lasts until after your return (of course, I have a vested interest in that last part..) Bring some Turkish Sunshine back with you please?
Love the book - I can't resist beautiful books either. The basket is cool too. I never thought of car boot sales as a good place to find storage baskets.. now I think I should have gone to a few over the summer!
Have a great trip!

Your photos are beautiful, especially the mushroom ones, and you've made me almost glad it's autumn, though I'm still reluctant to pack away the summer. Have a good time eating figs and mountain-gazing!
