Morning over the City and Lake
It's been a wild week and we're off today to take Arboretum guests to Seagrove Pottery as a continuation of our Southern Symposium. As gardeners we spend so much of our time FIGHTING to amend all the clay we have in our piedmont soils ... and here, enterprising individuals have USED that very clay to fashion some of the world's best known pots, vessels, dishware, churns, and other incredibly beautiful pieces.
I painted this partly during my ten-minute lunch and then late last night after the lecture ... yep, I know, determined ... LOL
We're due for some wonderfully warm weather today, ending in rain tonight ..already 'spring fever' has our phones ringing with folks asking if it's time to plant their vegetable gardens! We're cautioning folks to wait until mid-April -- weather in our NC area can be surprising with its sudden changes!
Hope your day is grand! I'll catch up with everyone this weekend!
