Looking for spring
Usually we can enjoy the Camellia bushes around the house to give us some color with their white, reds and this one a favorite, pink. This year they have not even bloomed like like they usually do. There was a winter years back in the early 80's where the temps were so low that we lost a few to the cold weather. They seemed to have wintered through but no spots of color to enjoy.
We are doing our usual weather watching for the right time to light up the kiln.
Tomorrow is the day.We are heading out for the marathon loading this morning.
It usually takes about 5 hours to load.
Tomorrow fire, two days cool and a day to unload. I think that will take care of most of next week.
I would love to have a week of calm spring like weather, but they are taking winter mix mid-week.
This winter, like the economy, is the winter which will never end.
Best get off to it.
I have lower fired tiles to finish up and hope to get those through a fire this week as well.
With good weather and a bit of luck we should have some pots out!
