Bed conversion

Those bricks were got to finish the inside of the greenhouse, but they are the wrong size so they have been piled here for quite some time.

The bed has been reclaimed for te echinacea and such from the upper garden.

Beans and peas have been planted in the upper garden today 16 may

Pix are bed before and after

Current Bloomings

First azalea is out, early tulips. Later daffodils are still going as is forsythia. Hyacinth, wild violets, dandelions, apple, strawberry, alehoof and whatever this is.


This bed was cleared with fire. Not sure how period that is. It started slightly accidentally but it is interesting. The echinacea seems to be pleased with this, the larkspur not so much. Dandelions and violets are thriving too

Beauty in wood

You might think that by late April it would be ok to be out in the garden, but no. Cold snap, into the thirties tonight.

So this then is a woodworking post.

You make think you can see beauty in a piece of wood, but until you have stood over it for hours, pouring yourself into working it, watching your plane reveal the grain.. Then you begin to understand the beauty of wood.

This slab is 21 1/2 inches wide by 39 long...
