walks early and late when the weather is hot the only way to get a comfortable walk in is to go out before six am. everything is very special on a summer morning the low sun catches all the filigree patterns also there are a lot of critters about, including Miss T, and she gets tempted. here she is breeching in the barley. soaking wet and mad looking. we cross the A148 and walk through Sharrington and Gunthorpe special things can be found – pigeon tawny owl, also rook and blackbird, but I got two tawny owl feathers this week. some mornings there have been puddles, after thundery nights and blue skies above wet lanes some mornings heavy dew after clear nights and lots of shadow to keep one cool secret gardens, found when miss T has chased a bunny into them the churchyard, full of flowers wild and tame with archways to inspire shapes but the workshop gets up to thirty degrees and more, so I kept out of it until this week, when the temperatures have gone back down to a civilised maximum twenty. I unpacked last week’s firing, but I won’t glaze until I have another bisc firing done. meanwhile there’s dyeing to do as well and evening walks when the light catches everything in a warm glow and the sky changes every second and indoors the jasmine in the vase starts to put out its perfume Post navigation a bisc firing tonightchurchyard flowers 7 Comments lovely photos of the morning light Reply I have such a grand time living vicariously through your wonderful things Reply oh, thank you Grainne, that’s lovely 🙂 Reply Loving Miss T she looks like a real character!
