A little autumn magic

Today, after a bunch of errands and a shaky nerves inducing dentist’s appointment, (always the way for me even though everything always turns out just fine), I promised myself a little calm and a little autumn harvest of leaves.

I found my favourite little park and had a walk. Look what I found!

Beautiful amanitas!

My absolutely favourite mushroom in the world. The humble toadstool.

But isn’t it just right, isn’t it perfect? Isn’t it autumn to the max? I think so. Those were fairies who came down last night to dance on the grass, to recline in the soft moss under the trees. Those toadstools are formed from autumn fairy magic. We all know this. 😀

OK, maybe I did actually stop here to collect some leaves for an upcoming art project. But being in the company of autumnal fairies is always lovely.

    This is my favorite post on the entire interwebs. <3 (I DO believe in fairies, I DO! *clapping with a will*)

    The toadstools look like they belong in a fairy garden! It’s a beautiful time of year! Happy Fall! Hugs, Diane

    Veronica, I dropped in to ask if you were the one that months ago recommended Portrait of a Lady to me? I remember ordering it then and was so disappointed when Vol. II came. Rats! I just this week found a copy of Vol. I and read the first page–well, no wonder it’s supposed to be a pretty good little book!

    I hope the rest of the pages live up to the first one as it will probably take me a year to finish both. But, if it was you, and I really seem to remember that it was, thank you!

    And thank you for my morning trip through a bunch of your lovely photographs, of your house that I adore, and through the countryside. I’ve missed your photography, I must visit more often.
