Return of Green Man

When the winds whisper chill and the birds dream of southern sun; when the leaves crumble red and the acorns bound; when the cauldron of myth starts rumbling anew: Green Man returns.

Perhaps you don’t know that here among us dwells a sprite of nature named Green Man – neither human nor beast, something between an animal and a leaf, Green Man is nature itself, he is us all.

Today, we heard the spirits sing, and so we went out hunting for Green Man. We found him, perched upon root and fern, and he showed us the wonders of Autumn, here in Morningside Gardens – follow our journey below:
