New Apple Moon

Today is the New Apple Moon.

Today I honour the Apple tree.
Today I celebrate the apple.

It is also Michaelmas.

Friend butterfly and friend Apple

basking in the Autumn sunshine.
Happy New Apple Moon.

I just love your extra tidbits of information. I had no idea of Michaelmas until today. Thank you.

I wonder what the tune is that goes with the Michealmas song?? It sure is a sweet picture that goes with the song.

Belen said...

Oh..I have to tell this to my sister!! Today is her birthday!

Belen said...

May I use the Fotoan tale of the daisy Fairy formy Blog?

Q said...

Dear Mimi,
We do have lots of fun!
I am busy looking for a goose for Michaelmas!

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
I do not know the is a sweet poem and picture. A new-old holiday...nice for September 29th to be special.

Q said...

Dear Belen,
Sure, that would be just great!
Maybe Michaelmas will once again be a fun dayfor everyone. Happy birthday to your sis.

Hi Sherry,
I so enjoy your kind words. I love your inspirational pictures too. What is the name of the book you showed?

Q said...

Dear Wendy,
I am a moon girl!
New Moons are my favorite.

Apples are tasty.
Butterflies are sweet.
New Moons are special.
I am now complete.

Sherry, who sometimes thinks in rhyme

Q said...

Dear Anna,
So glad you are home from your Grand Tour.
Traveling with you was a true adveture and delight. I will go someday.
It is Apple time.

Q said...

Dearest Sprite,
Happy happy New Moon!~!
We can eat apples and laugh and know Grandmother is watching over us.

Q said...

Dear Meggie,
Thank you! Spring comes to you and Autumn to me, we both have the same moon!
Happy New Moon,

Q said...

Dear Grammy,
Thank you. Our little song comes from "Flower Fairies of the Autumn" by Cicely Mary Barker.
She has these for each season.
Happy New Moon,

How appropriate, Sherry--I have buckets of apples just waiting for me to put up. They have been bountiful this year. And I have heard of Michaelmas in poetry before, but didn't realize it was Sept. 29.

Q said...

Dear Rose,
My neighbor's apple tree is full of ripening apples. The ground below is also full of ripe (rotting) apples. The butterflies love those!
September's New Moon name changed this year...
October now has the Monarch New Moon.
A bit of happens. LOL.
I was very excited Michaelmas was on New Moon. I thought it would be nice to celebrate them together.
Long ago Michaelmas was a very important holiday.

Wendy said...

I'm up for the challenge:

Pumpkins are ready
For pies, loaves and cakes
Growing and cooking
We know what it takes!

Not as good as yours, but it's fun to think in rhyme.
Blessed Bee

Q said...

Dear Wendy,
So fun!! Thinking in rhyme is the best.
I am looking forward to getting our pumkpins. I did not grow any this year.

Chris said...

To wish you a belated happy new apple moon, Sherry :-) I hope you are well. Where has the year gone to?

Q said...

Dear Chris,
Thank you! Happy New Apple Moon to you too. I always think of you when I am spending time with the moon. Hope your Autumn is crisp and delicious!
