I couldn't resist this old,old draught set for $ the dovetail corners
A beautiful platter for $5

 One of the perks of Mr VL's job is we can go out to the plant  wholesaler and choose from thousand's of plants at a fraction of the we popped out this morning  and did some planting today .

....and so to planting in our garden on a gorgeous Spring afternoon
