|Brian keeps quietly telling me about the 'Harvest Home' ritual, and gradually it's sinking in...|
this is the 'corn dolly' he made for an event over a decade ago, still with him.
|Georgia stands in the path between the Utrecht Blue wheat and the flax,|
showing how tall everything has grown.
I couldn't imagine this, when we started with bare earth in the spring!

|Lynn helps me clip back the marigolds --|
it now takes me about 40 minutes to clip about 60% of the heads
from the 250 plants we planted in the spring.
|The marigold heads look lovely on one of the Catalonian tension trays|
that I made after the workshop at the Urban Weaver Studio with
Josep and Magda Mercader
--- and tossing them onto a tray is faster than trying to place them in a bag.
|Paul took this photo of Lynn and I holding trays of the marigold blossoms.|
|Oliver and I were delighted with the rich plum colour of the fleece|
from the solar dye jar we made up last week.
|Oliver poses proudly with Brian and Paul, who did a little jamming.|
Oliver managed to sweet-talk Brian into letting him have a turn with Brian's accordion --
a budding musician with promise!
