We had another one and a half to two inches of rain yesterday. It was so wet the frogs were hopping around in the grass. I have no complaints when I hear of some of the fires that are happening elsewhere in the country. We live on the edge of several thousand acres of state management area, so fire in a dry season is a constant worry.
The fishy fellow below is a prototype. I make small fish whistle and paint a lot of fish on my pots so when I was asked for a big fish what could I say? I have several more in the works. It's been enjoyable to make larger versions of the small whistles I have been making.
The poppies are, rather were, starting to bloom. I shot this one before the rain. The blooms are so fragile that the rain really beats them up. And the wet has led to more fungus. Hopefully there will be a few more blooms. I think I'm going to transplant them out into the yard with the day lilies. Some will most likely continue in their original place. Poppies need only a small piece of root to put out a new plant.
Winter was very happy to have the sun come out this morning. She loves to zoom around the yard with her favorite squeaky toy. The easiest thing is to let her come into frame and then shoot, as she moves so quickly. I didn't think a little dog could be so fast. We've decided her breed is Long Legged Corgi!
I've been doing a lot of glazing in the last 24 hrs. The hardest thing is waiting for the glaze to dry so I can size it and start the designs. I have bunch of stuff under the heat lamps. Working on soft glaze leads to disaster.
Time to go get the papers. Happy day to all.
