Collecting...

What is it about autumn that we love the season so?
 Many people I talk to look forward to the changes that come at this time of year.
Numerous blogs are posting about the smell, the feel, the look of fall.
Maybe it's the cause for coming inside after months of playing outside.
The air is cooler, we want to feel insulated and prepared for the coldest months.
So many feel the tug and pull of the creative beast within.
I have been inspired by the blog resurection fern
Margie Oomen has been keeping a nature journal for the summer, collecting, pressing,
drawing and putting it all in a blank book.
I thought I would keep an autumn nature journal by way of photos a few times a week.
I am a collector by nature and more oft than not bring something home from
my wanderings.

So without further delay we will begin...

Great idea! your images are lovely. Autumn is a lovely season but for the last couple of years we have had no summer to speak of, just wet and dreary so the arrival of autumn isn't as welcome as it shoud be.
