My New Home!
Three days of sun have given me a chance to catch up with my spring seed sowing. Previously this would have ment camping out in a corner of the greenhouse, but last autumn I aquired a purpose built potting shed! My little palace is fully equiped with a bench under the sloping window and shelves on the back wall. Three transparent bins, under the bench, hold compost and a large potting tray keeps everything tidy. I've even brought in an old wooden chair for coffee breaks!
The greenhouse is now bursting with freshly sown trays of flowering annuals and early veggies. All my autumn sown seedlings have been moved out into cold frames until they are ready to be planted in beds and borders.
Last year our tiny village found itself included in a new National Park and I've been invited, by a local stitching group, to produce a few small pieces for an exhibition to mark our new found status. The idea is to interpret aspects of the Park in stitch, in as abstract a manner as we wish.
In other news my latest A215 Creative Writing Assignment for the Open University has been sent off and I await the result. This one called for 1,500 words of Life Writing and I was quite pleased with it, but I can never be sure how my tutor will respond.
