Found Friday #25: More Fruit Trees, More Pottery Fragments

I mentioned in a previous post that almost every time we plant something new, we find little bits of this house’s story. Well, it’s happened again.

This week, Graham bought three new fruit trees for our mini-orchard (one sweet cherry, one sour cherry, and a Stayman-Winesap apple, if you’re interested). He planted them over the course of a couple of days, and turned up a new shard of pottery.

It’s sort of hard to tell if this one’s new or old, but it’s cool, either way.

I feel a little like a magpie at this point. I have quite the collection of small, shiny objects – little gifts from the universe, I think. We’ll see what we find in the next few weeks, as we work our way through the garden before the summer.

  1. I love this, Katie! I have a collection of pottery shards that came from the old Butterfield Stage stop near Fort Griffin, Texas. Putting them into some kind of art work is on my “retirement projects” list. I have only had them in an old Curtis Mustard jar for like 35 years or so. 🙂

    • Oh, gosh, I don’t think I’ve ever sat down to list them all. Let’s see… We have apple and cherry trees, a willow tree, a birch tree, a honey locust, and a Japanese maple. In terms of flowers, right now, we’ve got crocuses and daffodils, and in the summer, we’ll have some black-eyed Susans. We’ve got boxwoods, euonymus, viburnum, barberry, rose of Sharon, summer lilac, and lots of ivy and Virginia creeper (which we can’t ever seem to control completely). I’m sure I’m forgetting things, but I think that’s a pretty good list. I’ll post some pictures once more things start to bloom. 🙂

  2. Those little found snippets fascinate me too. I toy with the idea of writing stories based on their origin; things that might have happened in their presence in years past.
