Moonflowers and Mugs
The morning glories came back too. The wind was strong enough to blow all the more mature buds off the vine. A nice surprise to say the least.
Everything was planted late due to a cold, wet june. No worries about the well this winter!
I've been thinking about mugs lately. They hold a special place for me; I think because they are the only item I make that actually touches my lips. I use my own mugs for the most part. Many reasons, 1.) They are usually seconds so I don't shed tears when the cats have been drinking crazy juice. 2.)Over time I get a feel for my interaction with them. How does the lip feel against my mouth? How difficult, or easy is it to use? Is the handle right? How does the tea look in the mug? Does it work visually? I try not to get too compulsive......
Put together my first teapot in about ten years. Like bike riding I didn't forget how to do it, but it was a wobbly experience. I probably won't bother to fire it, but more will come.
