After a few weeks of unusually high temperatures for this month, we are finally feeling autumn in northern California. Always inspired by the wild plants that cover the roadside and hills, we thought we’d bring some fall inside by making a collection board. We took the dogs and collected bits of weeds from our overgrown backyard and a hillside behind our house. Though most of the plants we came across had finished blooming for the season, their new fall colors and interesting structures gave them a second wind. We are always amazed to see the evolution of the beginning of a green shoot in the spring to a flower in summer and a seed pod in the fall.

    Great Post. I’m happy I’m not the only person exploring the natural treasures of the earth and documenting it. it’s inexpensive and fun to make postcards of these type of collections too. And oh my what a great idea for poster prints !

    you guys always have my favorite posts here, and this time is no exception! as a girl here in the bay area i used to collect things just like you and seeing your board is inspiring and also brings back sweet memories! my house is still filled with pinecones and rattlesnake grass.

    wonderful eye on detail, beautiful cattledogs too (my fave). Reminds me of my daughter’s insect collection from college.

  8. thishumbleabode says:

    Lovely idea as always. I did a mini version of this with my little ones. Instead of pinning the specimens, we used light sensitive paper and transferred the shapes of fall leaves and grasses.
