Everything is groing well

 I recently got myself some fruit trees and all are doing well apart from the Apricot trees. 

Ive got two Raspberry's a red and a yellow ones that being in pots well not be allowed to grow wild.

I saw in Lidl they had seed potatoes so i got some and they are really doing so good, i have grown potatoes before.

It's my Lime tree that i am most interested in the little flowers are now growing into little limes. Last year i only had two limes to grow to full size i hope this year more grow to full size.

Strawberries are a waste of time i should not have wasted my time getting them.

Pots from the market

A while ago i got a number of pots from a market i go to ideal for putting my various fruit trees in. As soon as the weather was better the fruit trees got planted into the ground and they are doing very wel.

The pots now are being used to grow potatoes in and tonight i noticed little potatoes starting to come through.

As soon as i go to the market again i will get some tomato plants and strawberry plants. I have the pots so i may as well use them.

Print Cartridges

 For a number years i have been going to a place called Lousa to buy print cartridges for my printers. The service has been perfect and i thought i would give the lady a mention. 

Because i put an email on public show i get a huge amount of Spam/ junk mail everyday. I would normally change my email for another but so many nice people keep in touch via my email. It's for this reason i am ending this post without the finish i had hopped to do. 

To have carried on with the post about the print cartridge girl it meant that she may be contacted by some of the idiots who contact me.

Holland next

Below are some of my works i have made for customers. I am also making a set of the countries that make up the United kingdom. England, Northern Island, Scotland, Wales and even the Isle of Mann. 

My latest project  is the country of Holland including many of the islands.

 

Here it is Scotland, the wood is Chestnut and is 40mm thick. The person i made it for was almost in tears as he didn't think it would be so beautiful once finished.

For those who don't know this is England beautifully finished in Varnish.

Here is Trinidad for a lovely lady born in Trinidad but now lives not far from me.


 This is a group i am making of the UK, i still have one to make of Scotland.

Global warming ??????

Much has been said about Global warming good or bad who knows But.

Last years we didn't get as much rainfall as in previous years and we are in a fire zone.

The pictures below show this little stream that normally at this time of year the water is flowing like a raging torrent.

The local Council has recently had much of the undergrowth cut from the sides of the roads as a safe guard.

this is the stream where i get stones from for my fish tanks.
