It is officially still Autumn. I woke up yesterday to a dusting of snow and to me it felt like winter. Out in the garden some of my spring flowers are still in bloom and last week it was mild enough to feel like an Irish summer ….
No matter what the weather, I’ve been collecting flowers and seed heads for my flower arranging class that I go to on a Wednesday evening. I am finding my current assignment a little ‘challenging’, but I always love the foraging and ‘faffing with flowers’ – it definitely makes me happier.
As I gathered up some of my floral finds, it reminded me of the nature table we used to have at primary school. Does anyone remember those ? It was a table at the side of the room where we could bring in leaves, twigs, pebbles, pine cones and the like to help us learn more about nature and the seasons. Such a lovely idea..I wonder if that happens in schools nowadays ? Funny how many years later, my ‘faffing around with flowers ‘ on a Sunday morning triggered a long forgotten but happy memory…
Have a lovely Sunday 🙂
