wild food

rosehips-1

fennel-1

The Nature in the Home series is back over at Littlegreenshed! I’m really pleased to be taking part again. I love the impetus to bring some of the outside in and I find that searching for, selecting, and photographing my objects for the week can be a soothing, almost meditative experience.

This week, it’s my current favourites- rosehips, along with a fennel seed head. I looked in the garden for plants which featured in my Wild Food book, and photographed them alongside their illustrations. Rosehip jam is on my to-make list next week, and I have been drinking a lot of fennel tea of late as it’s supposedly good for nursing mothers.

Autumn is such a lovely time to be bringing a little nature in.
