Beer is made from grain and water (and other stuff obviously) so it brings together the elements of earth and water.

Pumpkin

(Cucurbita spp)

A pumpkin is for all year round not just for Halloween…

There are a huge variety of pumpkins and all shapes, colours and sizes which can be used in savoury and sweet dishes.

Apricot

(Prunus armeniaca)

The apricot is an orange coloured fruit from a small tree and looks very similar to a peach…but smaller.  The skin is soft and downy like that of a peach…or a baby’s bottom…

Work has been going on behind the scenes with Solarus Publishing to create and release my own oracle card deck.
