I decided to bring back the Rhinebeck mini sets to the shop(with a little twist)! Only available until Thanksgiving weekend (you know, all part of the Last Hurrah and all...), this fall sampler set is perfect for those scrappy granny stripe or mitered square blankets, or even socks!
The set includes: Pumpkin Spice Everything, Leaf Jumper, Apple Harvest, Arcana & Cempasuchil!

If you would ask me to describe my perfect running day, it has to be today! 🍁 Sun, fresh air and incredible autumn colors 🌲. Deeply in love with this season 🌿.
🇳🇱 Vandaag niet meegedaan aan mijn geliefde @nnzevenheuvelenloop , maar toch in mijn eigen heuvellandschap rond gestapt. 🍄 Wel super leuk om al jullie foto’s en mooie tijden te zien. Alles goed gegaan? Volgend jaar ben ik er zeker weer bij 🍂🦡.
Na het maken van de foto’s vergeten m’n Runkeeper weer aan te zetten (kwam ik na een km achter toen ik dat vrouwtje maar niet hoorde). Dus 18KM in totaal 🎉. Hij ging echt heel lekker! Geeft meer vertrouwen in volgende week zondag: @firenzemarathon 💓. Hoop dat jullie dag ook zo fijn was vandaag! 🦔
Old Man's Beard
The old man's beard was looking so lovely today in this surprising winter sun!
This plant is, by nature, rather invasive. It's aided by the way it forms its silky feathery white attachments, called achenes, to its seeds which allows them to be perfectly dispersed by the sweeping winds of autumn and winter. One if its other local names is Devil's Guts, maybe because it's doing the devil's work by taking up all the space for everything else!
It's not all doom and gloom as I mentioned above, native to my native lands of the south of england, it lurrrves chalky soil. Because its very successful here, it plays host to many different species: bees and hoverflies visit it for its nectar in the summer months, moths and butterflies use it as food and the seeds are vital foodstuffs for birds in the cooler winter months.
It's lovely to still be able to wander around without getting conpletely soaked or frozen to death in these last sunny days of autumn. Im very lucky to be the owner of the gorgeous Rosie, my helpful driver to get outside today. It's so worth it making yourself get up, get outside even when you might be not feeling up to it! #pocoapoco
