It is nearly Mabon, a time of harvest and thanksgiving. I am blessed with a large garden filled with good things to eat. The horse-chestnuts and acorns have attracted quite a few squirrels, the acrobats hanging upside down from branches or loping across the lawn with a cheek full of nuts and an impossibly fluffy tail following behind. Earlier in the season the squirrels and I were competing for the hazelnuts and walnuts.....the squirrels won. I have a very small bag of each put by for winter.
Squirrels are loved by the Fae, keep your eyes open for flashes of light or quick movement in the underbrush, where squirrels hang out - you may catch a glimpse of a Faerie.
Every year I am amazed by the beauty of Autumn!
