Olá Outono / Hello Autumn

É engraçado ver como tantos crafty blogs celebram as estações do ano. A mim também me fascinam e nunca me canso de admirar as transformações que suscitam. No Outono, adoro a mudança de cor das folhas, principalmente quando se transmutam num encarniçado raiado de verdes e amarelos. Tenho o sonho de um dia assistir à foliage no Vermont.

It’s funny how so many crafty blogs celebrate seasons. They fascinate me as well and I never get tired of admiring all the changes they bring along. In Autumn I love how leaves change their colours, especially when they become red with dashes of green and yellow. One of my dreams is to see foliage in Vermont.


Este fim-de-semana fomos passear ao Parque Natural do Douro Internacional. Eu, que ligo mais às plantas do que aos bichos, vibrei com as amoras maduras e com as amêndoas ainda nos ramos, e antecipei com alegria a época das castanhas.

We spent this weekend at Douro Internacional Natural Park, the second largest natural park in Portugal, where the river Douro passes through mountainous territory along the Portuguese/Spanish border. I’m partial to plants, not animals, so I was happy to see the blackberries ready to be picked, the almonds still on branches; I also anticipated with joy the chestnut season.
