Pagan Eye: Fallen Apples

We had a few days of high winds and all the apples fell from my tree onto the ground.

Yes, I know I should have got out the ladder and picked them before the storms, but once again I've shown that I'm a bad gardener as well as a bad witch.

At least I picked up the best of the windfalls and offered them on Freecycle to anyone who wanted to make them into pies or chutney or cider - and I took this photo to post on the blog.

I liked the contrast of the ripe red apple and the shrivelled rotting fruit next to it. It seems appropriate for the time of year as we approach the Autumn Equinox, and the season of the harvest turns to the season of decay.

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.

The photo is beautiful. I like the contrast of the two apples as well. I'm glad I'm not the only bad pagan gardener. I swear i have the blackest of thumbs. Weeds love me because that all that will grow for me.
