The Autumn Equinox

The time when day and night are of equal length, after which we will be looking to the darkening evenings. In another few weeks is the changing of the clocks, and the closing in of Autumn, wrapping around us, lulling us, inviting us to stay by the fire and put our feet up and pull out our knitting, this book, that project. Seduced by cosiness!

It's also the second harvest, a time of Thanksgiving, and it's at times like this I long for a garden that produces food. I think about it often, and cannot imagine how we could fit it into our busy life. But we did it, in a small way, before, and we can do it again. With baby steps.

So , for the time being I'll leave you with a peep at our Autumn table-in-progress.

And tomorrow I'll have a yummy recipe to share, which is a seasonal treat from this part of the world.

So, here's to a time of balance and bounty!

I can't even begin to imagine how a well-cared garden could fit in your busy life! I could never make it, and I have half as many children!!
Yeah, now autumn has finally arrived and I have mixed feelings about it. I like to be back to my routine but I miss the beach...

"seduced by coziness"...Ah, I know that feeling well!

Happy first week of autumn!
