The meandering thoughts of a modern-day hearth witch.

Wheel of the Year // Summer is drawing to a close

For the last couple of weeks, we have seen bales of hay being gathered and drying in the fields around us. 

The harvests have been happening - wheat, hay, vegetable crops. And the bees have been busy harvesting the last of the pollen from the remaining flowers. 

There is a recognisable chill in the air in the mornings and a faint reddish-orange tinge starting to appear on the leaves of some trees. 

I'm trying to make the most of the end of summer and appreciating the still-light evenings and slight warmth the sun still possesses. There's no denying, though, that Autumn is around the corner. I am very much looking forward to the new season and cosying down with spiced cider and pumpkin pie. Not long now!

Me too! I love autumn above all seasons, everything about it thrills me, the woodsmoke, the colours, the mist, Samhain, frost, cider, hot chocolate, harvest and of course my birthday!

Yes, Mabon celebrations will be happening here this weekend. Chicken and bean casserole is on the menu, plenty of wine and thanks will be given. Such a beautiful time of the year. Enjoy!
