Cleaning up the garden

I don't know if it's having a child at the right age, all of the Waldorf blogs I've read or living here but this is the first year that I've actually sat back and marveled at the absolute beauty of the changing seasons. 
I noticed all of the buds, bulbs sprouting up, birds, bees and insects of spring. 
The lovely warm weather, smell of fresh cut grass and lush green leaves of summer and now the gorgeous canvas of golds, reds, oranges and yellow that fall has given us.

We have been anticipating the raking up of all the fallen leaves and it was finally dry enough to get outside and rake!!
 L really enjoyed helping with every step
 with a little bit of fun along the way!
We even made a lovely elf leaf crown like the ones from Twig and Toadstool although the leaves were so wet it didn't last long!
This is the first year I'm actually looking forward to the delights that the winter season will bring!

Our raking season is over, snow will be here soon!
We love making nature crowns too!

Hope you are doing well!

Oh your description of fall and even the task of raking sounds heavenly - I think fall is what I miss most about my hometown. I'm so glad you're enjoying it all. And your crown looks beautiful, too.

Hugs, friend. Warm wishes to you.

Cool! I also clean my garden every weekend, then after that I will water my plants using my new garden hose. Anyway, I enjoyed reading this post. Looking forward for your next post.

Fall is indeed a glorious season... Our children are in their teens now and I'm a firm believer that after observing them ( as you do your young daughter) that what we are really witnessing is the miracle of life in action... How can we not, ( after being mothers) notice the amazing wonders of the changing of the seasons and so much more... Our students will teach us much more than we will ever teach them!
Love your blog!
