I'm hopping about the seasons lately! Spring on Wednesday, winter yesterday and autumn today.
It's a good time to preserve some of the beautiful autumn leaves, before a gale comes along and blows them all away.
The beech leaves in the jug have been in glycerine and water for about 10 days.
I love this jug, a Habitat purchase from years ago.
She, I think of this jug as 'she' (indulge me!) is a sassy lady, down to earth but glamorous too, one hand on her hip.
The leaves will last for ages.
The leaves on the table were pressed last autumn between layers of newspaper and put under a rug and forgotten about till now. With japanese quince, tiny crab apples and suitably coloured candles,they make a nature table table-centre.
