Christmas Presents

26 comments


Now the Festive season is over, I thought I would show you pictures of my lovely gardening gifts from Simon and Clare and Robin. I am so pleased with them and they are now in temporary positions in my garden.

Meet Daffy Duck

The Green Man

Spike The Hedgehog

All Friends Together

Floral Basket [From Robin]

“The Green Man” watching over us, just needs moving slightly.

Daffy now is mounted on a stone plinth so she wont topple over and will eventually be placed in the Pond area.

Hope you like my pressies ;0))*

We put Linseed on our ' Taffy ' Carole it helps to seal and protect it from the weather it's been outside all winter I'll take a photo when I go outside , Taffy's head is looking up rather than down but apart from that the same I think :o)

Lovely pressies!

Thanks Lulu;0)
Amy I was wondering about linseed oil I have got some but will have to bring him in to dry out first, you know how much Ducks love water lol

Good idea to dry Daffy first Carole , when you have the oil on it will be like water running off a Ducks back as they say ! .. Lol...

8 Jan, 2012

 

Lol!!
