Playing With The Moon - in honour of the Equinox

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may your God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
Bright Blessings


The Autumn Equinox 23rd September

Quite heavy at times, but outside smells clean and fresh. I stood at my back door drinking an early morning cup of tea, just watching the rain fall on the garden.

When it stopped everything was dripping and I could hear the water trickling as it ran down the slight slope towards the greenhouse.
The cat came in looking like a drowned rat :-)
It isn't cold though (unlike the past few days)
 I'm sitting here in my office looking out the window at the pond; raindrops from the wisteria are making pretty patterns on the surface.
Raining heavily again now.

Today, daylight and nightdark are equal.
From tomorrow the nights will be longer than the days. It is also a full moon tonight
So Bright Blessings to all, and may peace and contentment walk with you along your chosen path


22nd September

(would have been my dad's birthday today - he died 18 years ago. Miss him a lot.)

Bright sunny day again today, a distinct chill though - cardigan needed. The laundry is not drying very well out on the washing line, even though there is a bit of a breeze.
The roses are in bloom again, geraniums still flowering. Picked the last of the runner beans. Blackberies not so prolific this year either.


Tuesday 21st September

Been a bit lax for two days - weather diary wise that is. SO busy over the weekend I didn't have time to write.
The weather has more or less been the same though. Sunny and dry, but with an autumn nip in the air. A fox got one of the wild pigeons yesterday, feathers everywhere in the garden.
Not much wind, all very still & calm - bright blue sky again. Everything turning to seeds and berries. Roses have lovely big red hips.
