Looking down on the ground there is more evidence that autumn has arrived. Already trees are shedding their fruits - acorns and beech nuts can be seen lying under the trees already. However, the acorns at present are green and seem to be falling early. Have you noticed this? As the weeks progress conkers will start to fall from the horse chestnut trees too, so keep an eye out for prized shiny conkers!

✨🌙🏹 There's a notion in the potion, there's a meaning in her magic. There's a place in time between the tea and the rain, the wild flowers and the boundless books. A place where myriad mythology stays and kindness captivates its audience. Flow often spent her days by herself with glittering moments of time with her grandparents, her companion, Pom and the woodland nymphs she'd potter off to see. She would look up to the stars as the sun went down and smile at the thought that where ever we are in the world, we all see the same moon. She'd rely on the wind to be her bow to stand up tall and shoot her bow and arrow into the sky. She was fishing her own way, in to the sky to see what she could catch. More often than not, she'd capture magic sparks in her net and keep them close in jars by her bed. She felt drawn to these moon beans as if they were a part of her. Little did she yet know, these are her brothers and sisters of the universe. 🏹🌙✨P.s Flow thinks she caught moon beans, not moon beams. Another way in which she sees things through her own imagination. 🌿
🍃🌲🏹Flow's mother is a siren, her father is a nightling. Flow was created from a galactic, star dust explosion though a spell that was set to cause naive destruction alongside nostalgic devotion. If you were to wait for Flow, you'd see that she could be your very own moon. That the imagination you've been deprived of is in her magic and that that an ethereal universe you wished to see, she'll show you, little my little, portal by portal, from one celestial adventure to another. The stars look down on her in adornment and the ground she walks on keeps her graciously grounded. She's a woodland nymph and a giver of what could be if you look beyond just what you can see. There is an entire universe out there, between the land and the sea and if you're patient with her, she may just show you, what could be.🏹🌲🌿
🌾🌿🏹 Let's forage and we shall find. Forests, for Flow reveal a universe of ethereal enchantment that grows graciously and reliably through each season and struggle to reach its own serenity. She can relate to its struggles and serendipity coexisting through learning, growth and magic. Autumn is here, the harvest moon is upon us as are the munchkin pumpkins. This season is the one that enraptures Flow the most. If she had the ability to pause time and put it in her pocket of portals to step into, she would choose Autumn time after time, in the woodlands, high up in the mountains. Somewhere magnificently bigger than herself to realise that the entire universe is ever so mighty, yet so is she and no matter how tiny her form, how infinite her star dust soul keeps flowing authentically. The trees turn the colour of dragon fire and the trees settle down for hibernation. The equinox is upon us where the campfires warm our hearts and the slower pace of life soothes Flow's soul. In an island of trees, that's where Flow shall be, drinking tea on the stove, perching her typewriter close to her chest and immersing herself with nature and the rest. 🏹🌿🌾
😮 Steph found this in our field! Apparently deer shed their antlers. We are looking for the matching one!

Conifer trees felled at Pen y Coed milled on site to create timber for two community gardens. Also for people attending today's event to create planters and bird boxes as they find out about the Woodland Trusts woodland restoration work. #woodlandtrust #woodlandresoration #penycoed #woodworking
Marzymy o tym by być kiedyś sami, ale gdy przychodzi ten dzień serce bije nam jak oszalałe. Brakuje tchu i myślimy, że nie damy rady. Ale musimy. Co innego nam zostało? 🍂

Spend few last moments in my backyard and after watching @juliatrotti
