Submissions are now invited for the Autumn 2012 Showcase here at the zen space. You don’t have much time, but then you don’t need much time, do you? There is no specific theme, but since the Summer Showcase there have been some late arrivals at the frog pond, so they may well be included. So it’s open house, come-as-you-are, bring-a-bottle time. Maybe readers in the Southern Hemisphere will tease us with some spring words, garland us with crocuses as we are gathering blackberries – who knows!
