The height of summer…the time of year when the earth feels full and ripe.
Traditionally the grain harvest is gathered, celebrated and festivities are held for the first fruits. The earth is exhaling & teems with life.
It is also the time for a personal harvest; did we achieve what we set out to do with our New Year intentions? Could we have been more fruitful? It is important that during this time of looking inward we are realistic – let us not be harsh with ourselves, nor overly lenient. We must keep moving forwards truthfully….
Our Harvest Celebrations
: : Enjoying the first fruits

We froze our raspberries & saved a handful for our breakfast smoothies:
1 1/2 cups of spinach
1 dessert spoon of natural yoghurt
1 frozen banana
1 very green & crunchy apple
A handful of fresh raspberries
Water to achieve our preferred consistency.
