Making an Autumn Equinox Wreath

Making a Autumn Equinox wreath is a great thing to do with a child.  Many of the things that you will need can be found in your garden or local park.  We used Willow, Hawthorn, Rosemary, Fuschia, Honeysuckle, Lavender, Nasturgeon and some wool rovings to bind the wreath in place.  I had some left over pale yellow merino rovings that had been naturally dyed with Lilac Twigs a couple of Spring's ago so the circle feels very strong.  

As I asked permission from the trees (Willow & Hawthorn) to take what was needed for the wreath my little girl went off on her own magical adventures having conversations with the trees, and the bumble bees coming only to report back that Hawthorn was glad to help and was very pleased with the hand painted bird box we had gifted to it last summer.  I took delight in hearing her chattering away to the bumble bee.  And when the wreath was made she took it over to Willow and Hawthorn to see.
