August 26 Weekly Challenge

The word "harvest" needs little explanation.
We often think of the word only in terms of autumn,
but think how much is harvested in mid- to late-summer.

Flowers come and go all summer long . . . and
parts of my veggie garden have already been picked and eaten.

I love vintage fruit and vegetable labels.

The Harvest Moon has been used by hardworking farmers since 
the beginning of time to extend their workday.

Those mischievous squirrels begin harvesting for the winter 
any time they find a prize nut. Do you think they remember
all of their hiding places?

Harvest colors are traditionally warm and comforting. But
I like the bright splash of blue in this abstract painting of harvest time.

Did you know there is a Harvest Mouse?

Ripe for picking. Maybe these will become a luscious wine.

Sometimes a crop just gets a bit out of hand . . .
As summer draws to a close, what sort of images do you think of
when you hear the word "harvest"?

We hope you'll take the challenge this week and
show us what "Harvest" brings to mind!
You have until Sunday, September 1.
As always, link up with Mr. Linky below, leave us a comment,
and please link back to Inspiration Avenue in your blog post.

Well, Maggie, you've done it again! I thought all about harvests and decided that a mermaid could have a harvest of her own. Thank you for the inspiration!
