Zinnia anticipation

I found these giant, gorgeous foxgloves on a bike ride yesterday. Really they were large enough to be badgergloves. I wanted to take them with me, but the blossoms were too fragile.
Also yesterday, our Kilnmaster, Kyle Houser, gave a lecture on his wonderfully kitschy, blobby, tattooed ceramic work. Below are some slides from the lecture:

And finally . . . I'm waiting in extreme anticipation for the blooming of my chartreuse zinnias. Perhaps my patience will be rewarded this week?
