An irregular, irreverent, post-modern account of the surreal, the ordinary, and the bizarre happenings on and around the Felia lavender farm in Crete

Thursday, September 14, 2006


French harvest began today• G started by picking type 1s and 2s and then progressed to the french harvest. E&C erected the big drying rack over the past couple of days and it now hangs suspended in the carage• Decked out in a shroud of autumnal smelling sacking it now also hosts the first pass trim of the lavender known as "sofa" and is completely covered• How long the french harvest will take we know not yet but this year the drying will be accomplished more quickly than last what with the new drying technology and the earlier start• We shall see•

Shem and Shaun have meanwhile been doing their creative best and playing with / their latest toy. Trawling back through the digital archive of digital photographs Gill has taken here they have selected wildlife and nature shots and offer you the following: Cretan flora and Fauna • They have also been working on the LibraryThing catalogue (Beckett today) - tracking down books and tagging entries to create order from the chaos// pushing back the entropy day by day// book by book• A long job. Scanning spines continues and may go on even longer than the french harvest.

The french harvest will yield oil/// the toils of Shem and Shaun will yield only order. Both will yield beauty.
