That time of year again, my favourite time of year! When you look past the endless grey days in Ireland, where the rain is so bad the air is constantly heavy & drenched and stacking layers upon layers of clothing is the norm; there are in fact these little glimpses of the most beautiful changing of the season’s anyone’s ever seen.

Aren’t these lush colours just to die for?! I have them plastered across my screens right now to warm me up as I wait patiently for Spring to arrive in all her glory. These burnt orange and warm amber hues remind me that even in the depths of the starting months, when the weather is grey and the days are cold, there is always colour and warmth to be found in the wild.
I’ve created these wallpapers as free downloads for you for your phone or desktop wallpaper. The words, by Rumi read “The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep”. This quote really ignites something within me. It’s the whisper of that soft little voice which nudges me awake of a Sunday morning and says “Don’t go back to sleep .. theres just so much to do and see” ..

Hello November, I have been waiting for you. I just didn’t know I was. You are the forgotten month, the that sits quietly and patiently between Samhain and everything All Hallows Eve inspired and the red month, the festive season of good will to all. You sit there in the middle of these tow mammoth months boasting Movember and other charitable causes and people use your peace to busy themselves for the upcoming December.
November is when the cold weather arrives. Autumn and winter fight to claim you. Winter creeps up the garden path every morning slowly and with a chill, I hear her creeping. Autumn prevails and she is seen most sunny, warm afternoons. These months, as I have mentioned before are like visual poetry to me and I love nothing more than to soak in their words.
This wallpaper set I have created is in homage to that poetry, the season’s poetry. The words read ‘In the fall, I believe again in poetry if nothing else it is a movement of the mind.’ They are an excerpt from a beautiful poem by Jaakko A. Ahokas, writer. (See the full piece below). The image is from a set I shot in the garden of the Ardilaun Hotel which I still have to share.

In the fall, I believe again in poetry
if nothing else it is
a movement of the mind.
Summers ball together
into sticky lumps,
spring evenings are glass beads from one mould
for standard-size youth,
winter a smooth heaviness, not even cold.
But the mind trembles
here, on the brink
the mind trembles
there is life, after all,
there is life, still
― Jaakko A. Ahokas
