A GAME OF THRONES
copyright 1966 George R. R. Martin
It's 62 F under cloudy skies, but supposed to drop to the 40's by this afternoon and lo 30's tonight. We have had a few frosts, enough to kill off the annuals, but nothing lasting. We have a few things left to do. Pull the pumps and filters from pool and pond, get leaves off the deck....little stuff that makes functioning easier in the snow. Winter is coming.
I do not love winter. It's fine until about Twelfth Night, because the turning of the year is about ice, cold and dark. After that I'm ready for an early spring.
Every morning I tend to my plants. At the moment they are all blooming nicely.
Below are two more Christmas cacti that are starting to bloom, followed by hibiscus, passion flower, and fuchsias.
Meanwhile back at the ranch.....I am making pots like crazy. I don't have the stamina yet to spend more than four hours at a time in my studio, but I am learning to pace myself. I surprise myself at how much I can get done knowing my time is limited. If I take a break for a few hours, relax even have a siesta, I can go beck for another two hours.
Because this was a rather late sign-up and time was lost due to various storms, I am making my inventory shallow and broad. Better to have half a dozen of each than dozens of a very few pieces. Besides its fun to vary what I am making.
This show goes on for a long time (too long in my opinion) so most potters keep working and restocking until the bitter end.
HOW LONG SHOULD A SALE LAST? FOOD FOR THOUGHT!
Keep on making stuff!
As always, thanks for stopping by..........*s*
