This week for the LIFE# meme I enlisted my OH’s help with taking some pictures on autumnal theme.
I gathered these leaves on a brisk, windy walk but there was no way I was going to strip off any layers outside. So I came back home and snuggled into these lovely long black socks which come well over the knee (cos at 5’4″ I’m not very tall).
I went to the same place where I’ve been gathering chestnuts. At this time of year their very spiky outer coating splits open when they fall from the tree so you can ease out the plumpest without too much pain. When I was a kid we had an open fire. My father would roast them in a cast iron pan punched with holes. Now he lives in a more modern house he toasts them under the grill – waiting till he hears the skin burst open.
Does anyone else use what they find in the wild to eat or drink? Blackberry crumble or sloe gin perhaps?
I also Tweeted this picture for @SMUTProject’s November Sock Competition
