O.K., so it's still cold, miserable and the days are still short so I thought now whilst we are all still feeling a little glum would be a good time to share my 'gardeningy' Christmas presents!!
So no more talk....Picture time!! :-)
So firstly I have a Honey book to share with you. This, very surprisingly came from the Headmaster at school. Up until now I have always received a box of chocolates so I was a little taken aback by this wonderful gift and have to give credit where it's due. It is full of amazing myths and legends on honey and then also has lots of food recipes a long with ways to make the best use of your hives by utilising everything the bees give you. I haven't had chance to read all of it yet but I do love it and know that it is going to be coming out a lot, not only to help me with things to make and do with my honey and hive products but also to give me some ides on the new blog I have started for Grantham Beekeepers. (yes I am publicising again...but really some of the posts I have in mind are going to be relevant for all of us to help sustain the worlds bee populations!!)
Next is a paper potter. I already have one of these in the greenhouse on the plot but the beauty is that this one is a little bigger so now I can make two different sizes of pots. I love the inscription painted on the front of this one. How true it is for all of us who garden or own and allotment!!
Then last but not least is my seed storage tin. Again I do have one of these, same size but in pink that I have shared with you before. Now I have two I will be able to order my seeds better so that older seeds can go in one and keep all of this years seeds together. Also by not clumping so many into the one tin will give me better visibility.
Of course you all no about my wonderful camera...I'm thinking I should start another blog purely for photos...I love finding opportunities to experiment but then what do you do with them?? Maybe I should have a random photo day On here...what do you think??
After all check out this....
When you can take photos like this with it without having to do any editing at all it's a shame not to share them!!
That's all for now!.
