A Day Playing Out In The Sun .. Lots Of Little Jobs Done.

Hello there ... hope you are all well ..
A real Spring like day today .. wall to wall sunshine .. 
a day to play out... 
and grab a bit of that lovely sun.

Well ... not so much playing ..
 more like 'at last' getting some outdoor jobs started ..

 I rooted about in the shed until I found a tin of undercoat .. 
I sanded down the conservatory windows and gave them a goodly coat of paint.
This conservatory never seems to get finished .. 
its still waiting to be sanded down and sealed with linseed oil ... Oh well .. one day.

 The Girls .. and George of course .. 
had new shavings in their deep litter shed .. and the outside scratch pen was forked over for them .. 
this causes great excitement as it turns up all sorts of worms grubs and other goodies. 
Their day was complete when I tipped a trug full of dead leaves into the scratch pen (sweeping up around the paths and whatnot) ... a look of pure bliss on their little faces ..
 Ahhh to be a chicken with leaves to scrat around in ..!

 Hubby P was his usual industrious self .. 
doing a bit of make do and mend ... here he is repairing an interesting little table .. giving it a new lease of life.

 A lovely little coffee table .. it is level and straight .. really
 ... its just me with the camera that's not altogether level ... 
and on many levels I should think !

 Here's the little trolley he was painting (on the last blog post)
 it looked more blue in the last pic ..
 now he has shabbied and waxed it it looks ...
well ..worn and shabby .. as it is supposed to do.

I really quite like this .. but I really do not have the room .. anywhere .. I've checked.

I thought you gardeners out there might like to see these .. they are the bees knees.

Nice little vintage .. cast (iron/metal?) Herb plant name plaques .. there are eleven in all ..  lovely things ..

 I think these are quite special ..

 I had a good old tidy up of my pots and containers .. 
and the old ladder/shelving thingy ... I like my old ladder it gives a bit of height and interest to my galvanised baths and pots garden. 
I or rather Hubby P .. with me doing the important 'pointing' bit .. moved the containers to the other side of the garden .. 
I fancied a shift around .. new season .. new look.

All looking ship shape around the pots bit.

And look what I found .. (no .. I don't want your rude thoughts!)

How thrilling for a Girl .....!
The first of my asparagus spears ... I have a little pot/galvanised bath actually.. of asparagus plants ..
and they are coming on really well .. 
of course it will be a few years before we see any real crops .. 
but hey ho' .. small things an all that!

Its getting to that time of year when everyday you find something new in the garden ...

So whats new with you ? 
I hope you have something to look forward to .. 
wherever you are ... 
whatever the weather is doing..

Take care x bye for now x
