Well the days are passing by I still am working on my new location and getting things right with all of my Lampwork equipment. I received this lovely card and Original art work in the post from Andrew Thornton! Who ever has him in their life they're blessed hes I believe to be a feeling genuine person. I was so touched as it came out of the blue! Oh Andrew you Rock! I shall frame this in remembrance of you. And look he sent a pc of his heart..Andrew is quite a talented jewellery designer and his family owns Green Girl Studios for anyone who doesn't know. You can find Andrew here.
The kiln in its place..
This is this years rose growing nicely. From the tub to this. Unfortunately I lost 2 of them but atleast I have 10 left..
Where did I plant my tomatoes this year? In the front garden! The soil is so hard and clayish very devoid of nutrients here. This fall I would like to have 4 to 5 truck loads of soil delivered. I so envy people with soft rich soil.
This glorious creature visited me this morning. Isn't he wonderful as you can see he is quite a size by the penny on the table..We had alot of them in Scotland and they made some lovely doiley patterns in our pansy's!
I then moved him to the flowering canna for safety. I was reading about them just now. I thought upon first seeing him he was a slug but slugs have no shell. So he is a snail. I found some interesting facts as they have both male and female reproductive parts. They will lay about 30 eggs in the ground or a rotting log. They can be eaten by frogs, beetles, rats, hedgehogs, and other snails. As pets they can live to a year. With that said I shall pass!
Go out and have a great day!
