The Garden Anchors

The lesson I have throughly learnt,

and wish to pass on to others,

is to know the enduring happiness

that the love of a garden gives.

Two days of sunshine and warm temperatures helped me make progress on the painting and staining of the greenhouse and Rabbit Run Cottage-potting shed.

So much more to do and finish, but waiting for spring to return.  It’s hard to paint in a winter coat and gloves!

I’m happy with the changes and can’t wait for the plants and flowers to fill in the canvas.

A few times a year I bring out my wreath making skills.

A crate filled with dried Rose Hips from last autumn became this years decorations.

Wire small bundles of dried material onto a wire wreath frame.

Keep the bundles close together and wrap with a continuous wire spool.
