Hi froze last night but big thaw on now, rain expected soon.

fidgetbones - i dont know about blue foam, but I have used pink foam for rock faces /hills. I have done a similar thing on some of my model walls though. Started with a little block of plaster paris carved into a model dry stone wall about 8 mm high by 5mm wide, then I coat it in a rubber latex several times, I then have a cast to make lots more little model walls.

Hi thanks for the generous comment on my snow gargoyle / grotesque . Never done grass sculptures I bet they need quite a bit of maintenance. Never done any pottery either but I do have a model railway which I never get round to doing. I have been keen on doing some topiary with yew through.

Surprised how many people got married in there late teens - early 20s, I am 24 now and have no intentions what so ever getting married let alone have children . Quite a few people I went school with have had children but I don't think to many have got married. 

My first greenhouse

Hi fishy , I have an elite greenhouse I am very happy with it but the construction was a bit of a nightmare with the instructions so poor. If you live in a windy area the frame needs to be extra strong and consider bar capping. My GH is located very close to the house so I got it powder coated green, I were a bit unsure if it was worth the money but now I wouldn't buy a GH not powder coated, I see the GH very much part of the garden. High eaves are ideal as well. the price can escalated quite quick when you start adding accessory so be careful 

You can try Gumtree, I saw the exact same GH I just bought on gumtree with all the bells and whistles for £220 i payed over £1000 a couple of months before  for mine , they was selling cause it came with the house and was no use to them.

I think greenhouse people and quite a few others are doing sales on GH at the moment.

I been playing out again in the snow again . I done as much as I can on my snow  gargoyle, I cant add as much detail as I wanted to do cause its melting . I compressing snow in black bin for the main body, I then set into it with a spoon and a knife.
