If you live in a temperate climate like Europe, where STEENSSEN comes from, then you know the tricks that nature plays at this time of year. After the warmth and comfort of summer, the weather gets colder, the days get darker and the rain pours in from the west.
At this moment, nature seems to compensate with a smile. All around, the trees and bushes change from a tired dark green to a blaze of colour. Yellow, gold, orange and deep red fill the cities and landscape with a kaleidoscope of hues. In actual fact it seems like magic that everything can change so much so quickly.
There is an old folklore, that if you catch a falling leave before it hits the ground, it brings you luck.
