Autum is here

Well at least it's in Bishop's Court Glen

In parliament, the Minister of Mists
and Mellow Fruitfulness announces,
that owing to inflation and rising costs
there will be not Autumn next year.
September, October and November
are to be cancelled,
and the Government is to bring in
the nine-month year instead,
Thus we will all live longer.
"Just another Autumn day" by Roger McGough
(amused me anyway)

Like christmas at Hogwarts

The finished pots from the Southern and Royal Manx agricultural shows waiting to be delivered. Strewn with paper packages tied up with string, my studio looks like Hogwarts at Christmas.

Blossom bowl

Some times when I make something, I find things that remind me of it everywhere! Like backwards inspiration.
