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 color 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 color palette … and look closely it is incredibly colorful. The trees are waving their leaves to the ground in a confetti of bright colors. The fruits are ripening too – colorful hips and a harvest for the local fauna to enjoy.
