I may not be running a blog a great deal about my backyard garden recently, in particular because I commenced my pottery web site, but I am nevertheless gardening (besides now even though there is snow on the floor).  And introducing pottery to my backyard garden.  And using vegetation from my backyard garden as inspiration and impressions in my pottery.

I have two ceramic totems in my backyard garden, and quite a amount of pieces ready for me to generate yet another totem this summer months.  These two serve dual reason of decorating the backyard garden, and defending my pricey Davidii involucrata (dove tree) when I drag the hose all around the backyard garden :

This lantern was initially planned for the backyard garden, but just after so a lot of several hours developing it, and a amount of people warning me not to consider a prospect leaving it out in my backyard garden, I nevertheless have it inside the kitchen.  But I am nevertheless thinking of acquiring it a place in the backyard garden a person working day.  At the very least for a get together.

I manufactured two significant ceramic masks – “tree males” – who adorn the inside of the write-up on my back deck.  I want I had photos to share, but am as well lazy to down load/email them from my mobile phone to my pc.  But listed here is a person of the masks.

I nevertheless appreciate gardening.  And I am extremely much enjoying pottery.  And exactly where both of those pottery and gardening collide, it is about as close to heaven as I will get pleasure from in this lifetime.
