Veggie Patch sign and little Jazz

Do we plant seeds or not? Well, I've planted some potatoes and onion sets and in the greenhouse have put some peas in pots, and that is that! Itching to plant all the other veggie seeds but to early and cold, probably May will be the best time and as we have such long daylight hours up here in Scotland, they usually catch up.

In  anticipation of all this, we have built a fence around the veggie patch out of re-claimed wood and having a rummage, found this picture that I painted many years ago on the back of a cupboard door. This is going to be screwed onto the fence, so everybody knows what is going on behind the fence!!

I just painted the wording on this week. We used to have it ontop on the kitchen cabinets for some years. I was practising painting on almost anything that didn't move in those days!

                                              Close up
A sweet little birdie perched on the flower pots, and a trowel ready for action.

On other news my daughter has just got this little darling.
Little Jazz a cocker spaniel. How cute is he.... and such a lovable little doggie. Him and Nikki get on really well together, although Nikkie was a bit wary of him at first but soon sucumbed to his charms. (although she was a bit indignant that he had the audacity to go in her bed and inspect her toys!!) haha.

Wee Scottish Houses.

Here we are again another 2 weeks flashing by. This time I have two little wooden houses to show you all. The first is the 'wee house on the cliff'
The £ coin is to give a scale to how big this wee house is.


Side view and you can see there is a loooong drop into the sea!

The sailing boat is already to set sail for a fishing trip.

 Next is the 'wee house in the wood
                                       
Nestling in amongst the trees, with the light shining in the top window, the owner must be getting ready for some shut eye!

The trees are made from stiffened fabric with a matchstick sandwiched inbetween.

                                              Both together
They are rather addictive to make.....good job we have lots of wood so I can whittle away to my hearts content!!
