Cool banner Sandra!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

This really makes my imagination work overtime.....at first glance I thought it's two new twin planets having been discovered...not. Then the outer skin of a new breed of cantaloupe...not. Really a mysterious and unique banner.

Both of those went through my mind, too, Fleur. Hilarious!

Very creative banner, Sandra. Thumbs up
Are they pots or total re-creation of the pollen?

Yeah, I thought it could be some type of melon, too! I'm curious what they are: pots? decorative ceramic "stones"? Please show a full image! Smiling

Sandra, as soon as I saw the banner, my mind jumped to the out-sized simulated agave pollen grains that were put on display at Matthaei Botanical Gardens after their giant century plant had shot through the roof when it bloomed. Then, when I saw whose banner it was, I knew my mind wasn't playing tricks on me. This brought back happy memories of seeing that entire progression of botanical events. Thumbs up Thank You!

glazed stoneware and ceramic pigments, the largest was about the size of a Basketball.

That is a marvelous find!! Thank goodness you captured them and are sharing it with us. Now I must look up "ceramic pigments" to learn a little more. Love the banner.
