As I said in the last post, it was the Chettle House Garden and Craft open weekend.
Chettle House is about three miles from us and when we went to the show last year we came away with quite a few goodies for the garden and wanting more this year.
I have quite a few hares around the place, 10 I think at the last count, and this is moongazer No 8. The nesting birds plaque and Green Man were from Hilltop Garden where Paul Harvey of Whitchurch sells and displays some of his stonework. I know he produces quite a few pieces for resale but they are not mass produced on an imported scale and have great unique qualities. I already have one of his horned gargoyles.
And I finished the Kingfisher. John would like this one framed rather than just shoved in the folio!
I am really having trouble keeping my head out of Jan Messant's book. It really is lovely and a total inspiration. I am thinking of translating a couple of her ideas into pieces. We live in a very ancient landscape here, we even find oyster shells from the Romans in the garden and we're 20 miles from the sea, and I would like to incorporate this into something. Thing are stewing with the little fellas in the back of the brain!!
I hope Spring Holiday is good for you where you are. I keep putting on skirts but I'm usually back in jeans by lunchtime!! It will be great weather from tomorrow of course.
