UPDATE: a stop at my mint patch across the street, and the cut mint for my morning tea is now replenished.
As you can see, I have also been to the local thrift shop and found a small piece of Oaxaca pottery, the kind that looks like it was made from pencil lead, and also a blue glass bowl, probably depression glass, that looks vaguely deco.
Further research tells me Oaxaca pottery is purely decorative, and since a low temperature firing method is used to get the black color of the clay, it’s too porous to hold water. It’s so whimsical though, I love it.
Walking along the railroad tracks at twilight, I found a few of the plants that ordinarily have drab fall colors take on a striking appearance in that light. Unfortunately, they don’t quite fit any of the vases I brought home.
I love seeing bits of the outdoors inside, but that project will have to wait for later. The sun has finally come out and the garden is dry enough to work. Time to finish transplanting, before the frost they are promising for later in the week.
