Balcony boxes have been filled with sturdy heather to bring some colour to the winter whiteness. I liked the layers of colour – the grey of the wood against the pink, with the evergreen hedge and yellow autumn leaves in the background.

I usually “pick” mine at the market place. I don’t know enough about mushrooms to venture into the woods to look for them. Might cook something poisonous!
Friends who do proper picking say that this autumn has been exceptionally good. Especially with these golden yellow chantarelles, which make a delicious sauce! Today they looked particularly tempting in the bright sunshine.
An unusually hot day for the time of the year, and I was lucky to be by the sea in Helsinki. The solitary rowan tree really stood out in its striking autumn colours. I could have sat there for ages, enjoying the warmth, and storing all the goodness of the sun for the dark time to come.
Couldn’t you just imagine a tiny fairy, with transparent wings, hiding behind this umbrella-like cutie, on the thick and soft, mossy-green carpet 🙂
It seems to be a really good mushroom year. Some colleagues boast about dozens of kilos picked in the forest. Sadly, I am not that keen on eating them but find them interesting to look at on the ground.
