Homes and Gardens

Guess what I did yesterday afternoon. Go on.

You'll never get it.

I did this:


It started the day as a shabby old stone (I think) cockatiel. I gave it a scrub up a few weeks back becasue it looked so tatty, and then I thought "Ahahahahaaaaaaaa, it may just be a dull stone cockatiel today, but some day it could be a fabulous phoenix. With a cockatiel-like crest."

And now it is.

I'm so proud


Other news: The WithaY kitchen garden begins to yield its bounty:

Old kitchen stuff is my porn! I love that spoon.

How many people did you have to "share" the bounty with?

It's a sugar sifting spoon for us to drench the strawberries (look closely) in sugar.

Just the two of us, although I might make jam with the leftovers.

I love you firey phoenix. You must put it next to Mum's gnome.
Can we share your bountious harvest?

The gnome and the fiery phoenix will become pen friends I think.

The bounteous strawberry harvest is all gone, but we are beginning the Mighty Courgette Harvest...we had some for dinner tonight.
