Last Wednesday my exhibition of "Pots from The Collection" opened at the Black Barn Gallery at Havelock North. It would have been nice if you could have been there. The photo used for the invitation was taken by Derek Henderson, a professional photographer based in Sydeny, Australia. The photos on the Black Barn website (www.blackbarn.com) are all mine. Please enjoy.

Before the season passes too far these are two images taken here recently. The two planets were clearly visable from my deck towards the end of March and looked increadable beautiful. The tiny red mushrooms were only about 40 mm. across and it was the first time I had seen them growing here. We have had a much wetter summer and autumn which may account for them being here this year.

This lovely water basin at Ryoanji is something I used to wonder about trying to make from clay. I'm glad I did not try as I don't think it would ever have had the charm of this original. The image of the shadows seems to relate to the Ryoanji sand garden except that one is permanent and the other so fleeting.

The Kinkakuji Golden Pavilion in Kyoto is a beautiful building with lovely gardens. It should be a must visit place if you ever are in Kyoto. I would love to be able to view the inside of the building - I'm sure it must be very beautiful.
