Autumnal Equinox

Image

Did you have a good day? We enjoy marking the passing seasons and the Autumnal Equinox with it’s gentle light, morning mist and crisp Autumnal scents is no exception.

This year we have a new member of the family to help us celebrate

Image

We are struggling to name him; so far we have had Dr Kenneth Blackberry, Jinx, Vortigern, Jonty, Roy, Autumn. The list literally goes on and on. Any suggestions?

We kept our celebrations simple.

We discussed how the plants & trees appear to sleep through Autumn and Winter, but how actually there is development under the ground, the rest & rejuvenation that allows the tree to produce flowers and fruit again next year.

Image

We talked about how we too can plant seeds within ourselves; seeds of gentleness, kindness, courage and bravery.

Image

And then we each chose what we wanted to be growing within ourselves over the months ahead

Image

We ended up with two pots, filled with spring time bulbs – filled with gorgeous intent.

We also took good care of our bird friends.

And if any hedgehog friends would like to visit, they are most welcome too.

We walked at dusk in the meadow and along the edge of the woodlands. We came home and read some Equinox classics – The Secret Of Saying Thanks and We Gather Together.

We gave thanks to God for all we are blessed with.
