The heat has been relentless here in North Carolina. By late afternoon my New Guinea Impatiens is looking rather droopy.
Most of my plants are thriving, thanks to a nightly hand watering. The butterflies are enjoying the zinnias.
Despite the heat, we have been sanding bisque ware outdoors, and loading the kiln. We manage to get it done with lots of water and A/C breaks. Everything seems to take longer than usual.
The last two days were spent glazing. Tomorrow we will fire the gas kiln one last time before we head to New Hampshire for the League of NH Craftsmen's Fair. We are hoping for cooler temperatures when we head north! We are in a new space at the fair this year... tent 6, booth 611. It's a corner booth, which should give us some good visibility. I am looking forward to seeing family and friends. Just not looking forward to packing.
