Flowers for Harvest full moon and todays’ Autumn Equinox ritual of celebration. Then pay it forward!

Beloved Flower Lover,

Today everything is normal. It is as it is meant to be. You are reading this and doing what you are doing and expecting what you are expecting.  And we have a question.

What are you going to be doing at 8:44 p.m. GMT? today?

Well before we get to that, we want to say we really love and appreciate our readers. We adore the comments and look forward to even more participation from you all.

If you are a regular reader to this blog you will be aware that we acknowledge the link between flowers and the energies of sharing, love, peace, and that sort of thing. And we suggest you might like to use that time for that acknowledging the same in your own life too.

Why? Well today is the autumn equinox 8.44p.m. GMT. Now,if you are new to us,  we also suggest that you might want to just spend that time giving thanks for life. To acknowledge those energies in your own life in whatever way suits you.

From our research we keep being reminded that we are all destined to greater things however humble. And just by using flowers to acknowledge that we can be bringing more love  out from within ourselves out into the world.

If you are new to the blog you will begin to see a pattern in how we relate flowers, floristry design and everyday life matters. Again we share with you what we have come to learn that you are destined to greater things in your life and can use flowers to relax you and acknowledge yourself as you make changes to your everyday desires. You know the ones. Money, family, health, romance, career and so on.

Yes, we love talking about flowers, the heart, romance, health, wealth, family life, work, and all other genuinely important areas of our lives. We love ways in which we can expand the heart through creativity. And we remain curious and excited about that. So with all of that in mind, today, right now, it is a wonderful time for sharing, sharing, sharing. And maybe, to ‘pay it forward’.

For us here, we see how autumn brings with it the colours of rustic reds, golden oranges, yellows and deep, rich browns and all it’s possibilities.

And as we notice the berries, the fruits and seasonal foliage that add texture and character to autumnal  flowers.  We think back to this weeks the harvest full moon and today’s autumn equinox which help us to reaffirm the place inside of us that creates all that there is.

Today is a balancing time. An appreciation time. Right now it’s  ‘a love and appreciation ritual for ourselves as individuals and for others’.  A time to pay our love forward as we enjoy the balance in this shift in time.

In retrospect, we loved this weeks massive Harvest Moon, which was the last full moon before today’s Autumnal Equinox. Where night and day are nearly exactly the same length – 12 hours – all over the world. This is the reason it’s called an “equinox”, derived from Latin, meaning “equal night”.

Flowers are ideal for this time and hydrangea and gerbera’s are always a popular choice for sharing at this time of year along with roses and calla lilies. We also find that hypericum berries add lovely texture to your choice of flowers, as well as oak and croton leaves. We use them to express love during this time. Just because we can.

So what next?

After the equinox we will start to notice that the days shorten. We can also notice how we can harvest the abundance in our lives from getting in touch with what we have just enjoyed from the previous year.  Just that. Nothing else. Not for any specific goal romantic, financial, health, family, career goal. Just because you can love up on yourself just because you are here.

Just doing this can take the sparks of today’s celebrations into our hibernation period as we begin to nourish the next year coming.


Autumn isn’t just about the abundance of oranges and browns, there are other stunning colour combinations that really celebrate the spirit of the season.  From soft colours such as apricot, peach, cream, bronze and lilac to bright strong shades of aubergine, red, burgundy and cerise. It’s a time for drawing those colours into our personal ‘love in abundance routines and rituals’ to convert today’s energy so we can just enjoy life for the sake of enjoyment. And that is it.

These are important routines and rituals using colour, flowers and ourselves. So today’s equinox ritual like other everyday routines are structured to allow us to settle down and be prepared for the fruits of a restful autumn and winter to pay themselves forward.

Simple things.

The London Flower Lover Celosia and gerbera  CollageSo we have this marked in our diary. 8.44pm. GMT is this years autumn equinox. And it’s a radically compassionate and inspiring time. It’s a time for the ‘hard conversations’ with those we love yet may be estranged from. But on the inside first.  In our heart space first.

That loving conversation will re-balance those relationships just as the earth is re-balanced. So today really is the ideal time to send a person or situation that is upsetting you, love. A time to re-balance yourself from your heart outwards.  Now that is love.

And as you prepare to do it you know that you already have an abundance of love. Your harvest.  And in fact that situation, or that person, is a gift for you because they are calling you to re-harmonise yourself as much as them.

We love you 

and see you on the other side…. give and receive flowers!

    I shall put that time into my phone and hope I hear the alarm.

    I loved the Harvest moon this month, being able to see it clearly two nights in a row and photograph them was wonderful.

    I hope you and your team have a wonderful week. Thank you for bringing us flwoers


    • Yes, its in our phones too Lots of cleaning up happened yesterday and planning for autumn weddings has stopped so we can do this today. Thank you for sharing you with us. We love the process of this. It’s like planting a destiny garden. The harvest moon was amazing. So beautiful.

      Thank you for sharing, sharing, sharing


  2. Beautiful piece! Balance is something that is certainly missing from many people’s lives!


    • AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAahhhhhhhhhhhhh thank you. We love your comment. We sense that Sometimes its a scary thought when we misplace things, like balance.Resting in our balance comes from going beyond being mislead by that idea that we have lost something. De-stressing helps us to actually hear and notice that relaxation. It’s easy then to realise that we had what we wanted all the time. Everybody wins.

      It’s a return to love really….

      Sometimes we notice that as we use this time to review any mistaken, misplaced ideas we had about situations. We find the real cause of our happiness. We are just really there for someone. We find we are really here.

      We find that having simply accounted for the source of who we are, our own passion and desire. We begin to be affected more about life. Rather than just trading niceness we notice we tap into that space beyond all good and evil(Rumi).

      That’s where we have already found our peace. It’s already present.

      We really are thrilled with the way you remind us that none of us are lacking or gone. We notice that its sometimes a simple miscalculation or misunderstanding of where balance lives inside of us. Sometimes this is coming from a misinterpretation of who we are.

      What’s correct is that we are loved and love comes to us from all directions. Love and peace are the foundations of this universe we share with each other and helping you, helps us and vice vears. Because we are all one. Thank you for sharing too. Your words make a difference to us. Thank you
