Mists and mellow fruitfulness
Today is the equinox. Which is of course the day when we stop complaining about the heat and start complaining equally about how cold it has suddenly become. The journey to the train station now involves walking down into the morning mist which hangs over the Avon. The cygnets have grown and can often be seen carrying out down-maintenance and feeding next to the weir.
Avoncliff. 9 a.m. 21 September.

In the gallery we have our ongoing ‘Art of Silence’ show.
Any painting with a sea-themed subject matter is ripe for a little Herman Melville…
And of course we still have the brilliant Jack Doherty’s porcelain on display..
The British Art Fair begins next Thursday (runs until Sunday) at the Saatchi gallery and one of our featured artists is the inimitable Akiko Hirai, whose forthcoming show at the gallery begins on 14 October. Below is two sides of the same fantastic moon jar…
Akiko Hirai Extra Large Moon Jar 67 x 55 cm. £12,000
Please contact the gallery for details/ tickets for the fair. The Akiko Hirai pots will be for sale to attendees only.
Besides Akiko there will be new work on show at the British Art Fair by Nathan Ford, Helen Simmonds, Nichola Theakston, Beth Carter, Anna Gillespie, Bobbie Russon, Andrew Crocker, Harriet Porter.
In the deep fall
don’t you imagine the leaves think how
comfortable it will be to touch
the earth instead of the
nothingness of air and the endless
freshets of wind? And don’t you think
the trees themselves, especially those with mossy,
warm caves, begin to think
of the birds that will come – six, a dozen – to sleep
inside their bodies? And don’t you hear
the goldenrod whispering goodbye,
the everlasting being crowned with the first
tuffets of snow? The pond
vanishes, and the white field over which
the fox runs so quickly brings out
its blue shadows. And the wind pumps its
bellows. And at evening especially,
the piled firewood shifts a little,
longing to be on its way.
Song for Autumn by Mary Oliver.
