To celebrate the Harvest Moon a moon feather heralding a storm.
 I've moved all the loose pots and plants in the garden into the greenhouse ready for the gale force winds tonight and tomorrow. 
My son and I got the ladder and picked as many apples as we could before they fall and bruise tonight.
Likewise the fig tree stripped bare of its beautifully ripe baubles before they scattered as a sacrifice to wasps.
Pumpkins and courgettes lie low with their heads bowed in preparation.

Tonight the season turns with the gale and the moon. The leaves are in a hurry to fertilise the soil this year and put the ground to bed.
The fruits prepare to grow new trees.

And we move to the next decade since another fall...


  1. I'm enjoying your blog; came over from "Spirit Cloth".
    Your jeans guitar is marvelous. I also like your textile experiments associated with Jude Hill. Very lovely.

  3. I hope you didn't suffer any damage. The figs look delicious.

  4. Beautiful harvest, great photos.

    What a richness being able to grow and harvest such great food in your own garden!

  5. I hope the storm passed you and your bountiful garden with no damage. Your feather is lovely and the harvest of figs made my mouth water. I hope all is well.

  6. A very good harvest! I'm keeping a close eye on several things in the garden.

  7. I am very impressed with your process and sketches..many people who are not artists never understand the preparation work process. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
