Random bits and bobs.

First of all, here’s how the red-and-yellow tulips look today:

They are lovely, and they seem to be really robust – several years ago, a friend brought us ten red-yellow bulbs, ten black ones and ten white ones. There’s one small white tulip left from that planting, the black ones have all disappeared by now, but the red-and-yellow ones are going so strong that I even had enough bulbs for a second cluster somewhere else in the garden last year. (I’m a little sad about the white and black ones. I really liked them!)

In other news, I’ve been busy working on one project which I cannot disclose yet, plus preparing for both the IRM (drawing closer and closer) and the Internationaler Museumstag, taking place on the third Sunday in May (so this year it’s May 22). I’ll be in Darmstadt on that day, demonstrating really early textile techniques – think neolithic times. This is a bit earlier than my normal focus time, so I’m extra excited and happy to do something different this time around, and have been doing some preparation work for it. (That will include taking a few photographs for the programme and PR, which is on my to-do-list for tomorrow.) Some more prep work is also planned – I’ll have to harvest a few samples of plants that were used for these proto-textiles, but this is a task better done nearer to the actual event. Speaking of which – the programme for the day in the Landesmuseum Darmstadt is not online yet, but I’ve had a sneak peek, and I can tell you that it is chock full of interesting things!
