Fall Nature Tray
The cool weather is here, at least for a few days, and already my toes are ready for slippers, and we are slipping into vests and sweaters for early morning visits outside. With the changing season, our awareness of the world around us is heightened, we are more aware of the small nuances that usher in the changing season: the slightly reddening leaf, the bright orange pumpkin, the smell to the air, all hint at the shifting relationship of the sun and earth.
Our nature tray is ready for the coming season, with acorns, a gourd, rocks and of course 'leaf boy'. There is plenty of room for new fall treasures, but the bright fall colors are splashing the corner of our dining room with just a bit of seasonal joy. I love the exercise of preparing this tray for the seasons, it is my own marker of the shifting year.
How do you welcome fall in your home?
