Yeah, the same from me to all CS I think it is definately Autumn, chilly in the morning and as I left work for the day(about 1 hour ago) there was that classic smell of autumn, Burning Leaves, on the nose"
The Burning of the Leaves   

Now is the time for the burning of the leaves,
They go to the fire; the nostrils prick with smoke
Wandering slowly into the weeping mist.
Brittle and blotched, ragged and rotten sheaves!
A flame seizes the smouldering ruin, and bites
On stubborn stalks that crackle as they resist.
The last hollyhock's fallen tower is dust:
All the spices of June are a bitter reek,
All the extravagant riches spent and mean.
All burns! the reddest rose is a ghost.
Spark whirl up, to expire in the mist: the wild
Fingers of fire are making corruption clean.
Now is the time for stripping the spirit bare,
Time for the burning of days ended and done,
Idle solace of things that have gone before,
Rootless hope and fruitless desire are there:
Let them go to the fire with never a look behind.
That world that was ours is a world that is ours no more.
They will come again, the leaf and the flower, to arise
From squalor of rottenness into the old splendour,
And magical scents to a wondering memory bring;
The same glory, to shine upon different eyes.
Earth cares for her own ruins, naught for ours.
Nothing is certain, only the certain spring.

Laurence Binyon

Any more songs or poems or even photos for the season?

This is a bit off beam I know, but what the hay. I made this really tasty Autumnal stew thing that feels really seasonal & would look right proper in one of those cast iron witchy cauldron thingys some of you Wiccans use - maybe even better suited to bonfires around Samhain actually, but here goes:

Harvest Stew

* In a large pan: heat a glug of Oil, & saute a chopped Onion and some crushed Garlic.
* Add a teaspoon of Cumin seeds & a tablespoon of Paprika.
* Add to pan: one peeled and chopped Red Pepper, one peeled and chopped Butternut Squash, & one peeled and chopped Sweet Potato.
* Add a glass (1/3 pint) of Red Wine, & a couple of glasses (2/3 pint) of water, plus a Veggie Stock Cube. Add a can of Chopped Tomatoes.
* Place lid on pan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat & simmer for 15 minutes.
* Add a handful (3 oz) of Bulgar Wheat. Simmer with lid off, for a further 15 minutes.
* Season & Serve.

Topper!

I liked autumn better when I was still in Virginia. The colours were richer and more varied than in Essex UK.

Some warm bread with that soup?

slice soft baps or crusty rolls
place on baking sheet
spread with chunky apple sauce or thinly sliced apples
sprinkle with shredded mature cheddar or cinnamon
toast under grill until bubbly on top

My sunflowers are bent over like ancient crones, heavy with seeds which have not quite dropped. Last year's brought a whole bed full of babies last spring; so many, I had to thin them out. This year's I think I will broadcast elsewhere as I don't want them taking over the perennial bed, though they have been very companionable.

Please know that your e-mail message has been received in the Prime Minister's Office and that your comments have been noted. Our office always welcomes hearing from correspondents and being made aware of their views.

Thank you for writing.

Sachez que le Cabinet du Premier ministre a bien reçu votre courriel et que nous avons pris bonne note de vos commentaires. Nous aimons être bien informés de l'opinion des correspondants.

Merry Equinox! Time to start tucking in the seeds as the leaves begin fall from the trees at least up here in the North. the same greetings to you all down under. May we all look forward to a bountiful year as the quiet dark time falls upon the earth. I still have flowers blooming here so it won't come so quickly, but I shall know this winter that underneath the snow the beautiful little plants are just waiting planning their bursting forth in the spring time when the dark time is done.

Bears go into a sort of semi-torpor during the winter months, and can rouse themselves if necessary, to get food or defend their dens. (This sounds exactly like me!)

The sky puts on a show here at equinox. The harvest moon also seems more spectacular.
To make this season/year a happier space for all I have learned to customize mudcat.org and no longer will allow Steve Shaw to impinge upon my consciousness. His posts will no longer appear on my page except in archive.
I can easily keep an open mind without framing all my ideas with Steve posts claiming antithetical nonsense. My Shel Silverstienesque works will not be distracted by narcisistic critiques. Naturally I will see honest community feedback.

Keeping a simplicity in the midst of complexities is my goal and is best served by my own filter. Like a dog barking at the moon, the moon will not hear it or care. Only the dog's neighbors can be annoyed or overjoyed, its their choice.

An equinoctial gale is blowing through Stratford, wrenching leaves off the trees and tossing everything about. Rain will follow, fer sure.

After a long night at the District Returning Office and an early morning Zoom meeting about the choir’s annual general meeting on Friday, I’m going back to bed. A tornado might disturb me, but nothing milder is likely to catch my attention.

The slamming door you heard yesterday was Summer leaving the building. Welcome to Autumn, everyone, or Spring if that’s your orientation.

Well this year so far in Cornwall, September has been a rock-solid summer month. It's a bit of a cool, misty start on this equinoctial day but we're expecting sun and a temperature in excess of 20C again. The equinox is a point in time. In the UK today it occurs at 8.21pm.

There was a beautiful nearly-full moon rising above the village at about 8pm last night. Bright orange.
And today it's sunny and warm. Husband off to clean the High School until 9pm, poor chap. But his Wednesday Covid test was negative (as usual) thank the Lord.
I suppose I'd better 'get my arse into gear' and do a bit of weeding and window-cleaning. Not very festive, but I shall feel quite virtuous.
Later I'll sit on The Bench and chat to passing villagers and their dogs in the warm sunshine.
Looks like being a really nice Equinox! :)

It's a bit of a conundrum that, on the day on which the equinox occurs, most places on Earth get more than 12 hours' sunlight. The extra minutes get more as you move closer to the poles, as much as 15 minutes or more extra in the Arctic, for example. It's to do with the fact that, at sunrise and sunset, the sun's light is diffracted (bent) by the atmosphere, meaning that we actually see the sun "above the horizon" a little while before astronomical sunrise and a little while after sunset. The lower the angle at which the sun rises or sets, which is what happens the further from the equator you go, the greater the effect. At the equator, the sun on this day plunges vertically down below the horizon at sunset, so there's little or no discernible effect. Here in Cornwall, at 50 degrees north, today's sun reaches a maximum of just 40 degrees above the horizon, and at sunset it will slide gently down at a low angle, making the diffraction effect last longer. Etcetera!

It's another lovely day here, by the way. The shirt is off, the shorts are rolled up and I'll be cutting the grass this afternoon.
