2 \\ a sunsuit for poppy. to wear with a merino long sleeve and woollen tights.
3 \\ bedside books at the ready for a healthy dose of hibernation. hand creams for wind swept mum hands.
4 \\ a dried artichoke from a summer ended garden. oil, salve and homeopathics to protect our home and bodies.
5 \\ the morning light. slow and gentle. how i wish all our mornings could match it.
I can feel winter creeping in. It's amazing how quickly my home adapts to the seasonal change through changing rhythms. It's not something we think about. It happens naturally, a seasonal evolution, pulling warm layers from storage, piling books to be read on the bedside table, casting on my next project, the sun waking up ever so slowly changing the light to dim in the morning. Winter is long and wet but always starts with welcome arms. I am ready to hide away. To nest and bloom within my home before it is time to emerge and embrace the next season. Are you at the winter ready? To the dwellers at the other end of the globe- welcoming spring- may she be full of kindness.
