A BOWL FULL OF AUTUMN



trying to gather some autumn these days . searching for colours textures aromas . to disregard perhaps the fact that temperatures are still above 30ºC outside . I long for cooler more poetic days . . .

colhendo um pouco de outono por estes dias . procurando cores texturas aromas . tentando talvez esquecer que lá fora as temperaturas estão ainda acima dos 30ºC . desejo dias mais frescos e poéticos ...

There is a legend that if you carry an acorn in your pocketbook, it will bring you money. A long time ago, in some catalog, I found silver acorns. I still carry mine. I don't know that it works, but I have such memories of raking acorns in the yard, shoveling (yes, there were that many because we had a lot of oak trees) into buckets and taking them to the pigs to eat. Dad said the pigs loved them as a treat.

Oh que giro andei a fazer exactamente o mesmo que tu este fim de semana (: o que mais gostei de colher foi uma espécie de bolota onde estão as sementes do eucalipto, tem um cheirinho óptimo.

Espero que te dê muita inspiração, beijinho grande *(:

did you know it's eadible for humans too? in southeastern europe kids used to bake them the same as chestnuts and women made bread out of acorn's flour. i tried to eat it raw acorn few weeks ago, it's very bitter but when i chewed a little bit more, it tasted like normal nut. :)
