The Balcony Gardener - Isabelle Palmer

I asked MrP to buy me this book I wanted on his special one day delivery service with Amazon, but it was Saturday night so I had to hold tight for two days. Monday came and I waited by the door like an excited child, finally the knock on the door I had been waiting for - my book was finally here! As I signed for it, the delivery driver told me I needed to water my cucumbers and as I cringed and explained that I had started growing them inside and had thrusted them into a greenhouse during a...

Tutorial | Homemade Winter Christmas Wreath

I made a wreath to save myself pennies many years ago but this time it was a reason to use the autumn/winter change of nature as were the intention of wreaths in the past. I had twigs & branches a from a tree that needed to be given a second life and so after many months I decided to cut them up into useable pieces and get crafting a winter wreath for my front door! I took a wire coat hanger and pushed it out into a circle, then tied like sized branches together and started tying them to the...
