I’m going into nesting mode at home and this year in particular it feels that home is my cocoon. Suddenly I rediscover strings of twinkly lights that I pop into glass vessels; I frantically order candles of all shapes, sizes and hues and I start to feel the warm glow of colour to wrap around me. Is this part of our natural instinct in readiness for hibernation?
With the changing seasons, comes the change in nature’s colour palette … and look closely it is incredibly colourful. The trees are waving their leaves to the ground in a confetti of bright colours. The fruits are ripening too – colourful hips and a harvest for the local fauna to enjoy.
