The moor is so beautiful in so many ways! Last week we had one week off and our first stop was the moor again, all was full of fly agarics and other mushrooms. We headed then to the mountains and it was super hot, we had over 30 degrees and this week we had the first minus degrees - crazy change! My succulents are all in, I harvested my pumpkins and I am preparing the garden for winter.
Further I have been illustrating a lot and taking part in some challenges. (more about that later) Enjoy the last days of September!
The colors are slowly changing, flowers are withering, and the different angle in wich the light comes through the windows of our home makes it so cozy inside, that it feels save to turn inward after the outgoing season of summer. The rain brought mushrooms and snails and the first cold and like every year I feel surprised of how fast it already gets dark in the evenings.
We had red, yellow and black raspberries, japanese wineberries, jostaberries, two sorts of gooseberries, physalis and so many blackberries. And strawberries of course! I have one sort called forest fairy that produces from the beginning of summer until late autumn – they are incredible! Lately I had a dream where I saw big ripe strawberries covered with snow. Maybe winter is coming early this year, who knows ;)
The tiny white insect is one of my favorite insects. It is called white plume moth and every time I spot one in the garden I'm thrilled! It's such a beautiful, ethereal being!
