Autumn Greetings

Beautiful golden season has arrived! We have been blessed with the most wonderful sunny weather lately. But the equinox was a day full of rain rain rain. Mist on the hillsides and everything. Just right for cozy feelings and autumn anticipation.

The Harvest Story by Elizabeth Reppel is one of our favorite books for this season.

Beautiful story, written in verse, tells of the earths journey through the year, with help from the farmers of course.

Amazing inspirational illustrations!

Our days have been very full. Nice visits with friends and family, enjoyed and appreciated. And then the return to our quiet days, much needed, also enjoyed and appreciated.

Next weekend we will visit our (kind of local, actually almost an hour away) Waldorf school for a Michaelmas Harvest Festival. Here is a link to the little event, which I am sharing here because it includes a special Michaelmas story which I think you might enjoy.

Many blessings to all in this beautiful new autumn season!

What a lovely post, and the book looks beautiful.

In our part of the world spring has arrived, so we're enjoying flowers, sunshine and busy birds.

Just curious, I thought you referred to autumn as 'fall' in the states', is it a regional difference?

Hi Renee~
Happy Autumn to you!
We also have that book and love it very much! It is a work of art all by itself!
Oh gosh- Michaelmas is approaching so fast! I need to figure out what we're doing!
Our local waldorf school is also "kind of local" and nearly an hour away. . .
