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!
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*)
Oh nice! That makes about three of us Diana. 😀
Deadly, but so very beautiful!
I know! You should have seen Chloe. I moved a leaf and she’s like, “mom! Don’t touch!” Lol. Actually, there is a way you can eat them, if you boil them it destroys the toxin, but, to me, it’s kind of like eating blow fish. You can, but why would you want to? 😀

Beautiful handiwork of the autumnal fairies!
I think so too Patricia. 😀
The toadstools look like they belong in a fairy garden! It’s a beautiful time of year! Happy Fall! Hugs, Diane
Hi Diane. I’m always so enchanted by toadstools. They’re straight out of the Brothers Grimm, aren’t they? 😀

Fabulous……and they are all so perfect!
Hello there my new Scottish friend. 😀 I think so too. Thank you for leaving your blog ulr because now I can come visit you.
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.
Hi Dewena, how lovely that you stopped by. Now, of course, I have to pop over and catch up on everything you’re doing…lol. Gosh, I do love that book and love Henry James and that whole Bloomsbury group, but can’t for the life of me remember if it was me! I’m glad you’ve got the first one to look forward to now. 😀
