Donkey's Greenhouse Teapot

juliewhitmorepottery.etsy.com
Donkey is in the garden again.
 
What's he growing in there? Cucumbers definitely.
I think I got a bit carried away with the picture tools. Thusly is why there is writing on this picture. 


This donkey potter's garden is looking a little perkier after the rainstorms. I see its awfully herby. I need more color. I keep adding red geraniums........
I've been finding lots of heart rocks this month. I honestly don't even try , they find me. Amber, Susan, are you rolling your eyes??
I thought you might like to see my technique. I mooch lots of car time by insisting I need to sketch, so the Mister drives and I always have a little drawing pad in the car and lots of pens.
This jug was just now painted, about fifteen minutes ago. ITs what my things look like before I fire them. Its a very wonky jug, an experiment so I just added lots of color willy nilly.
Now I'm ready for lunch. Today its a fresh papaya and granola and tea with milk.
I'm kind of a dud in the exotic food dept. but I found something wonderful to make for an upcoming anniversary.
 
I know. Kind of classic huh? If you go to their  web site there ,
they provide the recipe
 
Before you go, I am listing this tomorrow too.
Goat has decided to move in
Now its time to get cracking. Thanks for stopping by..xxx

Update on updates

Here it is. Have you ever been more ready? 
 I've been gathering bouquets
And I think my latest animals look a little dreamy eyed
Uh oh, another orchard. Wouldn't it be wonderful to live in the middle of one?
 I'll be listing tomorrow morning and every Friday morning thereafter, things like this forget me not cup and saucer , and spoons to stir lots of honey in your tea
Until my spring fever abates!

Seaside girl

                                      
Sometimes when I'm painting I'll toss down my brush, gather up the necessaries and off I go....

Here; to San Simeon Cove, where the eucalyptus grow right down to the shore

And whale bones wash up onto the sand , ancient wrapped in seaweed and shells
Tall masted ships stay for days in the cove for protection from the open sea
And Elephant Sea Lions lurk just up the coast and sometimes a stray camps out too

A few lovely Moorish buildings sulk over the scene, supposedly full of treasure.
But the real treasure is in the nature there. Phooey for the bullion and marble busts of Apollo.
Its getting late! I must go back to Gull Cottage now
I'm working on a large canvas and almost done; and I'm missing home...........
Almost March! That means spring, and sheep and the first vegetables.
I will leave you with this beautiful Radish specimen.

A watermelon Radish. Wonder if it tastes as good as it looks?
