Happy Mabon to All!

Mabon, Autumnal Equinox

The Second Harvest

Autumn GreenMan

The days are noticeably shorter and there is a chill in the night air in the Northern hemisphere. Some of the trees are beginning to don their Autumn colours. The GreenMan, a symbol of green and growing plants, is all dressed up for Fall as we approach the dark season of the year.

Mabon is the second harvest festival of the year, occurring on the 21st or 22nd of September. The apple and grape harvests are celebrated. Vegetables, fruits and herbs are ready to be picked and preserved for the coming Winter.

A time for giving thanks! And also a time to evaluate the progress made on goals set earlier in the year. Did everything work out as planned?

Wishing everyone a fruitful harvest!


  1. And a fruity harvest to you too Lady Mermalaid
    I love the autumnal green man. I didn’t know there was one of those. I love the autumn. Strangely it has always seemed to be a time of renewal in my life. Always going against the grain! I must go for a wander through those woods again to kick the leaves about, and watch the squirrels performing on their trapezes, and listen to the trees whisper of things to come. and I need to get milk too at some point.
