Whooo’s been playing in my yard?
Honey bees, crawdads and whitetail deer, that’s who! These were sightings from yesterday’s walk around the property, gathering reference photos for drawing and painting.
I love being a country girl!
Animals can be so funny.
Geese crossing the street is a common occurrence in the Meadowbrook area where I work. The folks who work in the area are used to waiting patiently as the geese waddle across.
Just the other day, a gaggle of a dozen or so geese crossed the street as a group, then before the traffic flow could start back up, this lone straggler came along, taking his time and honking at the cars as he passed.
I couldn’t help but smile at his antics.
Last weekend some friends came over for a day of raku firing. What a nice day it was, too, with some good conversation and some good firing results. One of the most interesting parts of the day was spent observing an uninvited guest meander around the perimeter of our firing area.
I think he was what we commonly refer to as a “chicken snake”. When stretched his full length, you really got a sense of how long he was, about 5.5 feet from what we could tell. He finally got bored with us and slithered up a nearby tree. Thankfully there were no limbs from that tree overhanging where we were working!
I spend weekdays in an office because of “the job”, so it was really nice to spend the day outdoors, snake and all! These are some of the results of our firings that day. We’re getting closer to what we’re trying to achieve with the copper matte glaze. Looking forward to more experimenting soon.
Was standing at the kitchen window and saw this little visitor in my front yard, hopping happily around munching on the grass. Was afraid of scaring him away, so took this photo through the glass of the front door.
Have several orders to fill and need inventory to take to the 2 shows coming up in 2 weeks. Yikes! I’d better get busy! Black Creek Arts Festival – June 9, 10 am – 4 pm Tannehill Trade Days – June 16 & 17, 8 am – 4 pm
