I've been having fun painting these little dishes that are about 4 to 5 inches across. Originally they were supposed to be kitty dishes, but they also work very nicely as small dessert bowls.
I glazed them so long ago that I can't remember if the base glaze is Linda Arbuckle or Spectrum. I should be able to tell after firing them.
Now that the columbine is blooming the hummingbirds are happy! The three below are all plants that self seeded. It's always interesting to see what will happen.
I just look for the seedlings when the are tiny and transplant them all to a planter where I can keep an eye on them to be sure they don't bake in the sun and get enough water. I usually try to get the plants into the ground in late summer, although they seem to survive quite well in the planter.
The one below is supposed to be very hardy. It grows as far north as parts of Canada. I bought this one a few days ago. The last one did not make it through our very harsh winter of '14/'15, probably because it got flooded, then froze. This one is going in a different spot!
It's a coolish, drizzly sort of day today. It's supposed to be sunny and 80F tomorrow!
Enjoy the day, and as alway, thanks for stopping by..............*s*
