garden project

sometimes my textile work has to take a back seat while we get on with other projects a little bit of sunshine and a rise in temperature takes us out into the garden and after a bit of persuasion raised beds seemed to be the way forward, its amazing how quickly they have gone together - something to do with the price of  commercial ones  when I threatened to order them - suddenly some timber and soil miraculously appeared watch this space for progess!
