Blueberries are Gone with the Wind

This is a photo of the blueberries that were in my garden. I tried to keep the birds from getting them this year. I draped bird netting over the bushes and placed reflective whirly things, but they got them all. Not even waiting for them to ripen. Yes, all that fertilizing, mulching, watering... it was all for the birds. I saw the photos (below) of others who grow blueberries and they had a fortress built around them, like a greenhouse cage with net/chicken wire. Maybe next year. Or maybe just buy some!

Pottery in Waiting

These salsa dip bowls and small jug are now trimmed and dried and will be bisque fired next week. Thinking of colors to do for glazes.

Wascally Wabbit in the garden

This little rabbit has eaten the leaves off of the artichoke plants. I put chicken wire around them to save what leaves were left. Hopefully they will grow back.

Blue Dome Arts Festival

First art festival this year. It was a lot of fun. Three days. There was a huge storm the first night, luckily we completely packed up for that evening because of weather forecast. Some of the other artists lost their canopies, etc.
