I love these little beauties! They are like botanical jewels. This is their second year and I'm going to plant them in one of the alpine beds when they are over.

Sue, the glaze on the pot is hawthorn ash - it's one of the few pieces I have left from art college.

I noticed that my iris have started flowering. You are right, they are little jewels and very uplifting in this horrible weather. Though I noticed two of them are yellow - and I don't remember planting yellow ones? Confused Odd.

The only things I have from my college days are the mouse coffee pot and the horse figure that you saw. I did once set out to throw some storage jars - they got smaller and smaller and ended up as ash trays - and I don't smoke! But I do love unusual glaze effects.

Yellow?? Am I gone blind or delerious with all the drugs I'm taking?

I like the pot style though. It must have a really thick wall to take the inset ridge, presuming it is a smooth line internally.

Two of MY iris are yellow.

Come to think of it, when we moved in to our house in England a kind neighbour gave us some plants (and the history of the garden) including some beautiful blue iris. The following year they cme up yellow (and smaller)? Do iris revert?

OK. A stretch of the imagination on my part. But I took it that when you two met up that you did a swapping session. It was somewhere on another thread I thought.
