|The Garden Wall
I've finished the lizard hotel and am waiting for the first guests. The compost heap has been rebuilt and moved and all the borders are now complete and stone free. I thought I'd have planted some stuff by now but the stone removal has been such a slow and laborious job that we just finished preparing the soil today. Plants tomorrow, honest. For some reason I'm looking particularly happy on the bottom pic. Don't be fooled, I'm really crying inside. Again, I've added comparison shots.
And this is a little message for Ian and Andy: 'about bloody time'.
|Pictures on the Wall
I've got a mini exhibition of stuff I've painted and made over the last few years. The exhibition is in a local Estate agents. They're quite big on displaying the work of local artists round here in shops, offices and galleries, and now I qualify as local, I get to display my stuff too. I've got more stuff to hang next week. It's all very proper with an opening night et.al. Ooer.
The 'Shawl Pin' turned out to be an awl for making holes in wood prior to putting in nails or screws. They still sell them in the D.I.Y. shops. So no vintage stuff there.
