A couple of days above 40 degrees.
I found a shady spot to garden.
There is an old passion fruit vine taking over in here.
Puts me off grafted passion fruit!
Beautiful flowers on the root stock but
it would take over a forest in no time flat.
It has been some years since there were any fruit to harvest.
Hard to see but,
a wheel barrow full of weeds in the background .
And a lovely shady place for contemplation
This is looking towards the back door,
Pottery studio on the right.
This is my Desley Salvia,
it grows magnificently here in part shade.
I have been giving the slab roller a bit of a work out.
The green glaze was falling off this one as I wiped it's bottom.
My satin mat glaze does not cope too well with other glazes.
Looks good but very hard to control.
It is making me nervous to see this platter
hanging over the edge of the table.
It is a favourite combination of mine,
Tenmoku with Hyacinth blue over the top
This one is still in bisque stage. I was trying to disguise the
not so straight edge.
The butterfly will be totally blue when complete
Not overly keen on this style...but it will be interesting .
