驚いた事・the suprising

My persimmon tree bloomed for the first time this year (the surprise). I can’t recall it ever happening before so I’ve been intrigued with the blooms. I like their shapes for one.

After some research, I’ve come to realize that some persimmons produce female blossoms, others male and some have both (the case with my Chocolate Persimmon). The bees have been busy working amongst them in the mornings and late afternoons. Fruit promises to be abundant.

As I mentioned earlier, my Threads (critique group) group gathered at my house on Saturday for a work session – a large project we have a small part in.

And I’m learning new things from it.

Besides gathering materials and tools for this weekend’s workshop for the Gregg, it seemed appropriate to work up a fresh piece. I’ve been wanting to do this since my first encounter with the pieces that are now on exhibit – something that references one aspect or motif from those pieces on display. It’s in process and hope to complete it for dyeing at the workshop – I hope.
