Mid Spring 2000


This is the view from the gazebo towards the 
perennial and Fragrant border. 
the borders are starting to leaf out and 
burst forth with bloom.. 

 


 

Benjamin is hiding the Lamb ears. He says 

they are very soft and they tickle.

 

There he is again hiding in the primroses. He says he loves primroses.


He enjoys nibbling the tiny strawberries later on. This is his favourite volunteer. 
 
 

this is a stamp I really like


 


I saw a wonderful idea on Elizabeth's
website called

A Small Irish Garden

She had a really big terra cotta pot that crack and "landscaped" it with sedum and rockery plants. I had a pot that loved  crack so I did the same. I because I don't have a space that is cool enough but won't freeze I have found i can't over winter my pot but repot it from the rockery plants and volunteers and houseplants in the spring of the year.

Elizabeth's Page is really great.
Check it out.

Charlie & Mabel at tea time

These are my terracotta people. Instead of playing chess, they are having a nice cup of tea. I fashioned them out of terracotta pots. The terracotta tea set is mine I have had for a few years. Their Names are Charlie and Mabel. Their arms and legs are made from jute rope and small terracotta pots. Charlie & Mabel have Hens and Chicks for their hair.
 


 
 

Charle and Mabel are having a tea party 
in front of the Tool Shed. 
Sometimes they have English Breakfast and ....
........Sometime Earl Grey

Charlie & Mabel have hair of Hens and Chicks.
Charlie & Mabel are so proud they have made it on to 
Virgo's Aussie Garden site in their folly links.
