Berries and lace

Look what I spotted today!

berries-and-laceIn mediaeval times autumn was a busy month for the women of a family. It was the last chance to harvest the bounty of the hedgerows, to gather berries, nuts and seeds, to dry and preserve for the long winter months.

I don’t think the berries above are edible, just rather pretty cascading between the remaining lace of the leaves.

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;

Lengthen night and shorten day:

Every leaf speaks bliss to me

Fluttering from the autumn tree.

Emily Bronte
