Yesterday Astrid took her first steps. Today she left the house for a walk with a new nanny. They’ll be back soon.


As the souls of the autumn leaves slip quietly into the sky and their bodies shatter underfoot, another year passes – another circle of time completes. This is my time of year; when nature speaks loudest – the colours intense, rich and vivid, the light moody and sharp, the air teeming with atmosphere.

So close to the end… things never seemed more alive.

    Really beautiful photo. Love the colours. Have started a new block for my star quilt yesterday in similar shades, so nice to encounter them here, too.
