The area cleared of winter weeds in the soft fruit intake area. Strawberries now under cover from the night-time frosts. In front of them, some of the raspberry canes and a Loganberry. You can just see a scabby cherry tree (left) and then two of the Lidl fruit trees I planted last year - a damson and a pear.
Whilst we didn't spend much money yesterday, we had an excellent visit to the car boot sale. I was pleased to find a big bag of DMC and Anchor embroidery silks on one stall for just £1, so I snapped those up. On another stall I spent £2 on a spare double duvet set for one of the girls to take back with them. OH bought some solid brass hinges and 4 bronzey handles for £1 each lot.
The pack on the left was sent to me by my dear friend in the Forest, who said it had my name on it in the charity shop. Literally within an hour of it arriving I was using one of the greens as it was a very close match to one I'd just run out of in my Devon picture. The pile on the right were the ones from the car boot sale.
Here are few of them which I wound onto spools last night (bits of cornflake packet!) As embroidery floss is 75p a time now, this has been a huge saving.
These are some choccy biccies my son asked my to make. I will put the recipe up later.
Right, back to the paddock, where I am clearing brambles, and then I intend to do a walk up the valley.
