Hello Autumn !

jenjoycedesign©stag antler

Just in from a walk on my trail this morning and I found this stag’s antler. The amazing thing is, of all the hundreds of miles I’ve put into trail walking in my life, this is the first antler I have ever found!  Its partially nibbled by some rodent (rather badly on the other side) and Emma sure wanted to get a hold of it !  I’ll admire it for a while, and then I’ll make horn buttons from it one day, an undeniable certainty.

I’m welcoming this Autumn Equinox today with a new habit to acquire, of walking on my own trails  every single day.   Twice a day often as possible, if not three.  Moving mossy stones ‘just so’ out of the way, and preening as I go, a lot of carrying pruners to trim back bits and a bow saw for when a tree falls across…the only way a trail can transform from a deer path to a park-like setting is to walk it and groom as you go. The test of finish being that I am  able to knit while I walk the trail.

Today is the first morning one of my favorite season ~ and  with a bit of an ominous Autumnal find !

    • Aww Lizzi, that is sweet that you now acknowledge the equinox at least by the sweaters for nieces. Incidentally, we agreed yesterday as it is still so hot and everythig is so disrupted, to wait until weather cools and calms down, in October some time. 🙂 xx

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
