Autumn river

Autumn has come at our favorite place, the river, as well. The cows don’t seem to mind yet…

“Wat you doin?”

Impressive skies again.

Sometimes we find interesting dead animals… a spoonbill this time. Beautiful birds, even in death.

The other day we also found a gigantic eel. Somewhere in my head I ofcourse knew they could grow to be more than a meter long in our big rivers, but I’d never actually seen it. It was so impressive! Unfortunately I didn’t bring my camera that day…

I love the pastels. Still happy with the iPhone cam for managing to capture the sky’s colours somewhat.

Winter is coming

Which means autumn has arrived…

I do love the autumn colours. And the scents…

Beautiful dried flower silhouets.

The hawthorn is beautiful again.

If you look very very closely, you can see a tiny glimpse of a rainbow in the sky. I was constantly catching small hints of colour in the clouds, even though it hasn’t rained for weeks.

Busy working on the latest baby blanket… the baby has been born already, so I have to be quick! Can’t seem to get the colours right in the photographs, though. They’re quite warm, a bit autumny as well. (They’re matching the baby’s bedroom again).

As you can see, it’s gonna be a simple granny square blanket. I’ve tried a ton of patterns but really this one fits the room and the colours best in my opinion. Now to finish it before we’re going to see the newborn…
