just love those egg cups - oh and real fresh eggs (I remember them!)
and the lilac shuffle-shoes - well I've had them since B & Q closed down a few years ago and sold them off for a pittance. I was dubious at first that they would not stay on my feet, but several years of digging, mowing, hoeing etc later I can say they are worth their weight in gold.
I got a triple pear tree - Williams, Comice and Concorde to plant in front of the side of next door's garage, and a dual plum - Victoria and Oullins Gage. I'm hoping the weather will be suitable to plant them out soon as they are currently residing in buckets of soil in my new super-duper Vitavia greenhouse. I'm looking forward to a really productive year of seed-sowing and cutting-taking after having an enforced two year break from gardening here. I wonder how long it will take the fruit trees to bear fruit? They will brighten up the garage wall anyhow with the hope of years to come and delicious fruit.
OH got a variety box of RSPB bird seeds and two bird houses. Not quite sure where they are going to go, and I have an insect-hotel to re-site too.
All in all it's going to be a good year I think.
