Autumn Equinox

Today is the Autumn Equinox.  The day and night are equal in length.  It is the start of Autumn.
I am ready for it now.

Today I went for a walk and cut some autumn foliage from the hedgerows.

Arranged with some dried seed pods.

I knitted an Autumn garland with leaves, acorns and Rudbeckia flowers.

I cleaned the kitchen and re-arranged the dresser, so pleased with how it looks

Flowers, leaves, acorns, fir cones and conkers.  

Yesterday I was given some damsons and used the to make some wine, you only need the juice, so this morning I cooked up the pulp and made some Chinese style plum sauce

My duvet is the sort with a thin one and a thicker one that snap together to make an extra warm one.  Today I took the thin summer one off and popped it in the wash and put the warmer one on the bed, will be nice and cosy now!

Love how you styled your dresser, ideal for the season.

My daughter helped me to put out the autumn décor today, this is my favourite time of the year.

Oh Lizzy!! I love that garland! It's absolutely perfect! Did you crochet that? You know we don't use that word "Equinox", I don't know why, it's a great word and perfectly explains the new season approaching, I love it.
Your flowers are gorgeous and that plum jam... I would have some right now, as I'm making a "Breakfast" for dinner... It would be perfect.
I hope you have a great week my friend!

hi again, the place I got the little pumpkins and berries from is called Country Baskets, they have an online service you may be able to use. I made the sunflowers from a few lengths of fabric and the wreath I already had, I just tend to change it each season! The huff house...well that's my very own outdoor crafty space, a little wooden building that is affectionately known as the huff house, so if either one of us goes in a strop we can escape into their and watch the telly or whatever, but it is mainly my craft room!!
