There’s a snap in the air and a crunch underfoot, but don’t let that stop you—because a bounty awaits outdoors. Baskets full of flowers are standing by. A multitude of berries have turned rosy and plump on the shrubs. Pluck them up, and bring them close. The birds won’t mind if you stuff your pockets with some wild grape clusters to infuse your kitchen with that giddy scent. There’s plenty to spare. Fetch a few and put them in a dish in your office to sample their deep, ambrosial fragrance as you work. Harvest handfuls of fluffy seed heads from the field, and fill a vase for your bedside. Call it foraging or scavenging—the beauty of harvesting in autumn is that there are no second thoughts. Everything is about to fall.
