Beautiful drum form that Travis Fox made. Unfortunately it cracked all over the place in bisque firing, so I used glue then sprayed it with some gold and sepia, and put a plate inside to keep the dirt at the high level...and planted the pretty purple mums which my friend Rosie gave me for my birthday.
Isn't that a pretty thing to see when I come home?
Geraniums are so bright and cheerful, and these plants have been wintered over inside for the last 3 years. They even continue blooming in the winter.
Another potter friend's mistake of a casserole became a petunia planter...flowers again by Rosie, planter by Sarah.
Here my very own mistake of a pedestal fruit bowl became the base for the avocado and marigold pot.
Here's a very late season day lilly. All the rest have been cut back after a very lush growing season, but landlady Susan decided to leave this pretty to be enjoyed.
I wasn't a diligent farmer this year, so my tomato plants didn't give me very much. They needed TLC and instead were just observed as they survived, which was actually a surprise.
