a week or so ago, while I was talking to my neighbor Marianna who was working in her yard, I noticed that one of her beautiful tulip flowers was lying on the mulch broken off. I mentioned it to her, and she told me to take it home; I have been watching it slowly open up from a deep purple bud. Never knew that tulips could have blue centers...
The small ceramic flower holder, made last year in March, now lives on the cupboard next to the front door, and has proven a most Useful Helpful Holder for salvaged yard flowers, from Acorn Cottage or elsewhere...
Today, solved another minor annoyance, and realised I could hang the tune-box cassette player off the wall underneath the window, out of the way in the workroom. Two eyebolts, a bit of time with the electric drill, and a bit of salvage chain from the Box of Random Hardware and the deed was done. Which is eversomuch better than where it had been taking up almost the whole top of the standing workbench. I have several different ways to access tunes, and podcasts, and audiobooks, depending on mood and who all else is around. But my spaces are all small, and fitting the various functions in is a challenge
