I also saw a pretty little ring neck snake out in the yard. It was about nine inches long and had the brightest yellow band around its neck. Unfortunately, I was in the middle of cleaning up some glaze stuff and I couldn't get to the camera. Now that is the kind of snake I like- one that you can put in your pocket and won't bite. Oh - a side note- the snake eggs that we had found last weekend were not Copper Heads. Copper Heads are live bearers, not egg layers, so it was probably from a black snake, thank goodness.
John takes such good care of the flowers around the studio (and the ones at home). This Nashstersium was soaking up some sun today.
And on the back porch there are these Marigolds that have gone crazy! These were some from a pack of "miniature" flowers. John does not put any chemicals or anything on them, but it looks like they should be in a jungle. It is hard to see, but the yellow ones on the bottom stretch out over a foot and the stalk is more than 1/2" thick! I think next year we need a bigger pot.
I hope everyone had a good weekend!
