Long Trousers

before
Autumn has always been my favorite season and it arrived in serious fashion this week...bright clear skies, cool crisp air, geese flying in from the north, squirrels gathering nuts, apples at the farmers market, and the harvest just begun. In our part of the world most fields are planted in soybeans and corn and they are the first things to change color...the leaves on the trees will soon follow. I am never more energized than at this time of year. And that's a good thing because i have lots to do. I'm winding up my making list today before turning to glazing and kiln loading....the "Pottery on the Hill" Show is coming quick and there is much to accomplish by then.

This is the first time this field of wildflowers has appeared
I really like this teapot...scritchy, scratchy
now that the weather has turned it's whiskey (single malt scotch, please) season

I haven't made a cider jar in years...thinking of Ray
empty boxes
I'm always happy to put the shorts away and break out my blue jeans!

we are having one lovely fall as well and I am enjoying those blue skies and the end of summer days (and nights) Love that teapot! And everything else.
How is the mice problem? Any chewed pots?

I love the look of the cider jar and have never made one. I don't even know how they work but yours is a beauty.
