My old friend was the one who got me so interested in genealogy again, so I've had a great time pursuing the various things written about those ancestors....I hope my pottery friends have been patient with this.
Here are my friends the MudBuddies who sell their pots under the trees (and a canopy tent) every Saturday. Of course I go visit them still, and purchase lovely things from various Tailgate Market vendors.

"Calibrachoa has not been a part of our industry for very long; the first plants were taxonomically described in 1989 and the first cultivars released in 1992. The original plants were found in coastal areas clinging to rocks and surviving in some pretty harsh conditions, they so much resembled Petunias that they were originally referred to as 'Seashore Petunias'. Since their release in the early 90's this crop has grown faster than most other genera and become a major crop in its own right. The family tree of this genus reaches deep down into Latin America; almost all species can be found in either in Argentina, Brazil, or Uruguay. There are about 25 known species of this plant and the breeding of Calibrachoa is a complicated matter of finding which species will cross with the next.
Sepia Saturday has a tree for it's subject...I started with trees, and went into flowers.
This may look like just another old tree, but it isn't. According to the comments on the Flickr page of Cornell University digital collection - of which this Victorian albumen print forms a part - this is a photograph of the oak tree near Leamington which marks the geographical centre of England. As a Sepia Saturday prompt it might lead you in the direction of trees, or the centre of things, or fences, or things which turn out to be more than they seem to be. As always, the choice is yours. All you need to do is to post your post on or around Saturday 3rd June and then add a link to the list below.
More clay featured tomorrow, I promise!
