The upcoming Autumn Equinox can be a time of reflection upon the year’s successes and failure and a moment of celebration of the harvest cycle. This time of year reminds me to pause and look at the bigger picture of my life. I feel this due to the changes I am making in my garden and how the changes seem to suggest a time of reflection. I have been planting the winter garden, composting spent plants and planting cover crops.
Here are a couple close ups of different places on the quilt:

"The garden is, in a sense, the cosmos in miniature, a condensation of the world that is open to your senses. It doesn't end at the limits of your own parcel of land, or your own state, or your own nation."
