While I've had a lovely little garden 'spend' in my local market to tell you about - I have been working too so it might not come as a great surprise to see yet another Fag Ash Lil' - she has to be the favourite character!
I really should find a few more names for this lady.....although they're all cheery characters wearing all their 'slap' and trinkets for the early morning cleaning shift at the bank.......each one is individually sculpted and of course dressed in a variety of wrap-round pinnies and fluffy slippers so they all have different personalities!
I think this little 1/12th lady could have a go at my work bench with her bucket and mop before she sets off for the bank, then moves on to her new home.
Two special buys in the market recently - the first, a very unusual double cowslip, which is just lovely, and has now been planted in my 'wild patch' where I'm trying to persuade my lovely cat not to sleep quite on top of it when she's sunbathing!
...and I bought an owl!!
As I rule I can walk past the stall selling garden 'ornaments' without much of a second glance - but the large snowy owl, all very rustic and fashionably rusty took my eye. Two circuits of the market and back....for thinking time.... and he came home with me. Since I took the photo he's taken up residence on a chunky log and looks more at home. The local birds took a day or so to be sure he wasn't going to chase them but now they happily ignore him.
Thanks for looking.
