“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”

Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution

Nuts!

What a magical, beautiful time of year it is!  I am enjoying each and every day of this season... whether I am working in the garden, around the farm, or looking out of my sewing room window at the spectacular foliage.  It's been just the best autumn!  I am most definitely in the midst of a love affair with autumn.

We had the perfect autumn weekend here on the farm.  The days were sunny and temperate, but cool enough for us not to be bothered by any little flying insects. 

We stayed home for most of the weekend, with the exception of a run to town to visit with our littlest ones on Friday evening and take dinner to them.  I helped to get them tubbied and ready for bed as the next morning they were to have family pictures taken.  Saturday afternoon, I got to see a sneak peak of some of the photos and thought I would share this one with you...

Our mornings, of late, have been frosty and cold... everything looking like it's been dipped in sugar.

Walking the horses up to the upper pasture, I keep my eyes to the ground... noticing how frost has decorated leaves...

and feathers....

sedum in the garden...

and even the gate to the pasture...

Horses love to graze on frosty grass.
