So much to do!

I've been watering my cuttings in the green house tonight. I don't think they will survive the week-end if the weather is as hot as today. I have had very little time for gardening this year but at the moment it is still a great pleasure to sit in the garden when the weather is as beautiful as it was today.
Have been getting things ready for Art in Clay at Hatfield today. There seems so much to pack! Also been trying to repair our tent as we'll be camping there. Some of the poles needed replacing and my concentration was seriously lacking as I tried to measure each pole accurately. It constantly amazes me how many task unrelated to pottery have to be done to bring everything together.

New pots

Plenty to do this week. Today I had to move student son's belongings from one house to another.
The bowl was out of the kiln earlier in the week. I realise now because they are quite big I can only put them on the top shelf of the kiln where I don't need to use props.
Does mean that I may only have one or two for Hatfield. Getting ready for Art in Clay this coming week-end.
We went to the Hannah Peschar gallery recently. I think these two pots are probably by Jennifer Jones. They looked perfect outside this black and white cottage.
