Welcoming Harvest Flowers

Autumn Birth flowers News

When the hours of light and darkness are of equal length, people have for centuries celebrated the abundance of harvest on the Autumn Equinox.

In days when our connection to nature was stronger, the harvest was a brief time of plenty, spent gathering food for the darker months to come.

For me, this mellow season still brings to mind fruit-laden trees, fields of golden crops, hedgerows of berries, and fantastic, wheat-sheaf shaped loaves.

I love this short poem which speaks so beautifully about this time of year.

The Harvest

The silver rain, the shining sun,
The fields where scarlet poppies run,
And all the ripples of the wheat
Are in the bread that I do eat.
So when I sit for every meal
And say a grace, I always feel
That I am eating rain and sun,
And fields where scarlet poppies run.
Alice C. Henderson


This year, Autumn officially began on 22nd September and we've created our own Harvest Flowers letterbox bouquet to celebrate. Full of rich tones, including red, orange and yellow, we think it will look right at home on any harvest table.

Do you have any harvest time traditions? We'd love to hear about them!

Autumn Harvest bouquet, including sunflowers, dhalias and zinnias. Bright and warm colours held in front of a white background.
