A Big Gardening Week

I visited a couple of Salvo shops this week and found a couple of treasures

I love this little's a Booth's "British Scenery" from the 1930's...$3.. and perfect for roses.
I have a large collection of blue and white china but since we moved it's packed away in a box

Another sweet victorian book for my collection....$5

I love the shape of this old large jar

It's already cold at night in the hills....I have laundered all the quilts. 

This large cane trunk I bought last year has been a godsend

Wood has been delivered

In the garden this week

We bought a large lot of seedlings in preparation of Spring..delphiniums ,aquilegia, miniature cyclamen ,larkspur, stocks
