It is well underway by now, September. For as long as I can remember it has been my favourite month, which may have something to do with my approaching birthday (less than a week left, yay!) and a lot more to do with the cooler weather and the start of autumn. I have never been a summer person, being as I detest heat and am perfectly happy on cloudy days. This past summer has been absolutely horrible for me - way too hot and dry, it made me feel sluggish and out of sorts. But now every morning dawns misty and blessedly chilly, and though the sun breaks out eventually, its warm rays can't quite chase away the briskness of the air. Leaves are now turning from green to gold and fluttering peacefully down to scatter across forest paths like golden coins, and everything smells fresh and clean. No other season can set such a joy in my heart as I wander through the woods, not even spring.

I have been neglecting my poor camera for a long time now, so I decided to take it with my on my forest walk this morning to try to capture some of the beauty I see all around me. Here are some of the photos I snapped.

I am overjoyed that it is finally cold enough to wear my lovely Celtic shawl, which is big enough to pass as a cloak! Since it is a year since I was in Ireland, it is especially comforting to wear it now, as I bought it on Inis Mr on my last visit there.

Tiny mushrooms growing out of a cone!

More mushies.

I love mossy old trees like this one.

Do you rejoice that summer is over, too?

Ja er ikkje hausten herleg? ^^ *danse rundt i gyldent lauv* Syns alle rstidene har sin sjarm, men hausten er nok kanskje den som ligg hjarte mitt nras: Vakkert fargespel, gyldent lys, frisk luft, kjlege kveldar, fredelege skogsturar og innekos med te og bok p regnvrsdagar.. kva er det ikkje like? <3

Hausten gjer meg lykkeleg og tilfreds.. og kreativ! S mtte vi begge f ein fantastisk haust :)

Ophelia Violetta: Thank you very much! Yes, I am so lucky to live here. I could never live far from the woods, I need to be able to escape into it.

I have a great love for all things fantastical, fairytale-ish. Irish, Celtic and Norse. My biggest passion is playing the harp, but I also love playing my tin whistles/flute and making fantasy jewellery. I have a Bachelor's degree in the Irish language (also covering Celtic civilization, literature and mythology) from the University of Oslo, which I am very proud of even if I can't use it for anything career-wise. This blog is all about the things I like and involve myself in, and hopefully I may be of some inspiration to others.
