20th October 2014- Queen Bees

queen bees have come into my house for winter

For many years, with the coming of autumn queen bees came into my house looking for a quiet corner to sleep through the winter. In spring they asked to go out again. Then disease came to the world's bee population and one spring no bees asked to go out. After our glorious summer my house is again buzzing with bees and how welcome they are.

freshly pressed apple juice

As my orchard has grown so has the harvest of apples. Many are stored in crates in my garden shed which smells divine, but a large portion of apples are pressed for juice. My brothers built me an apple press and this video shows the processes from apple to glass. The taste of juice pressed from my own apples is so good, it encapsulates the sunshine of summer.

My garden celebrates autumn with grasses and laden apple trees. I have created a textile collage that is an exuberant expression of this. This very short video gives you a view of both garden and art.
