Following on from Septembers Styling the Season – here is my October submission.
October to me is the month of extremes; on one part it’s harvest time and another part it is also a time of decay. Cottage gardens and allotments are full of produce, chard, beetroot, the last of the tomatoes and of course squashes and pumpkins. The hedgerows are full of berries and nuts ready to be picked and stored or made into delicious warming tipples.
The flip side to all this autumnal abundance is fall. The decay and slow die back of crops and leaves. The smell of damp woodland earth and mushrooms is in the air. On our Autumn walks at the moment we are finding many, many stray feathers. I have been told that birds moult at this time of year in preparation for migration; discarding old feathers and growing new plumage to help them fly off to warmer climes.
For my monthly column over on Seeds & Stitches blog – I show you how to make the feather mobile. Hop over there to read more… Autumnal Feather Wall Hanging.
