It’s the eve of the Autumn Equinox. The moment that the last days of summer finally drift into misty, mellow autumn. Each year, I seem to find it harder and harder to bid farewell to summer’s golden charms and yet I do so love autumn, with its rusty hues, its fruit-laden branches and its bright, crisp days.
This year, to celebrate autumn and all its delights, my good friend Lou (@littlegreenshed) and I are launching a new Instagram hashtag specifically to document the beauties of this fresh season. We’ve called it #anatural_autumn, as a continuation of our wintery hashtag, #anaturalmidwinter.
If you’re on Instagram, we’d love for you to join us in tagging your autumnal images- the slow and the simple, the natural and the pared back. Foraging and preserving; fruit-picking and baking; leaf-kicking and seed-gathering; misty mornings and cosy afternoons. Whatever your simple autumn pleasure may be, please share it. Let’s create a gallery of gorgeous autumnal goodness! Lou and I will be sharing some of our favourites on our blogs in the weeks ahead.
We look forward to seeing what autumn means to you…
