Lots of plans for 2017.....
We recently had a nice cosy meal by the log fire, to discuss the year ahead,
as well as enjoying a bead fairy tutorial.
.....fairy days....(get your calendars ready).....
...cobbing..... yippee (not)....
.....reclaiming the orchard grass.....
.....planning the look for the inside of the tiny yurt.....
.....a new tortoise run.....
......a new mini-stable for the small animals.....
Oh there`s plenty to think about.
Bitterly cold weather has kept us indoors and only venturing out for short jobs.
I`ve taken the opportunity to paint one of the plastic chairs and make it a new cushion.
We are sitting in luxury in the polytunnel. Nothing like a comfy, colourful seat for the teabreak.
One more to go but not sure of the colour yet.
Paula has donated this table to us. We can fold it up when not needed.
We were thrilled to find this fantastic pile of hazel just inside the gate, which we will use for bean poles, sweetpea rows and mini-fencing.
Paula also gave us a pile of bricks, used for so many things in the garden.
Cobbing is on the cards for 2017.
Some huge chunks need replacing and the walls MUST be rendered inside and out.
We are on the look out for some building works around the village, where clay is being excavated.
Lots of work to do on restoring the orchard grass.
I envisage a small table and chairs here.
Another project will be new curtains for the little house.
We hope to choose some fabric this week.
Anne`s bead angel.
At home, our little summerhouse has finally had its day.
It was brand-new in 1990......
......soon blended into our garden....
.......went to Paula`s garden in 2007.....
.....and was demolished on Friday!!!
A great place for teabreaks and hanging dried flowers.
We have all loved it.
Now it`s keeping us warm once more!!!
