Went into town today to run some errands and spotted a cute little old lady selling wildflowers in Moszkva tér (technically re-named Széll Kálmán tér but nobody calls it that!)

I’d just been to the farmer’s market to pick up some beautiful vegetables and some walnuts (to make bread – I’ll post the recipe soon!) and came across this lovely bunch.

You’ll never guess how much it was – 400 Forints, which is just a little over £1!

And here’s a little leaf-based centrepiece I put together using dried leaves from around our neighbourhood and chestnuts from the tree in the back garden. Budapest in the autumn is absolutely breath-taking, and especially so in the hilly area where we live. Fresh air, beautiful big trees and tons of greenery everywhere. I wanted to bring some of that indoors and have been collecting fallen leaves like some sort of deranged lunatic!

I’ve got some ideas for crafts I want to do with them so when I get those together, I’ll of course post photos and tutorials 🙂
