Double market weekend

A double market weekend is always a challenge
a bit like a marathon, 
both before and during the events.

Both of these markets allowed me to showcase 
some of my pottery alongside my market garden produce.
Annie's market in Wentworth has grown too large for the veradah, 

with several stalls set upon the centre plantation.
A lovely setting under the Jacarandah trees
not too far from the action at the cafe/gallery
9am-4pm and a steady stream of customers from 
as far away as Broken Hill. 

Many return customers for our salvias 
and strawberries.

This strawberry found a new home moments after this shot was taken.
Pack up and back home to restock for Redcliffs market

We had a great day.

Our friend, sculptor Jim Curry graced our stall with his fabulous
copper weather vanes.

He really has a knack for capturing character
fantastic workmanship.
 Not one for computers, Jim now has a site where you an check out his

As this is the week for the final Mud colony blog I risked this
diverse post because as an Artist I have had to lead a very diverse
work survive. 
I admire and envy those who can 
dedicate their working day to their own  creativity.
I have had to find other sources of income and luckily I enjoy
growing and propagating plants, and teaching Art.
Check out what the other Mud colony contributors have been up to this week

Jim Curry is a genius! I wish I knew he was going to be there. I'm glad you had some pottery out for sale. It deserves to share the limelight with your flowers.
