making things for the garden


morning everyone from a very wet great wakering in essex. Now im unable to work due to terminal bone cancer i have a lot more time on my hands for the garden , funny how a small amount of time spent in the garden makes you feel ten times better. ok i must admit you sometimes over due things like the digging and the old back starts to hurt , but you look back at the end of the day and thinks ive done that and you feel better and without the drugs ! well ive now got into making things for the garden i.e an old pine wine rack turned on its side and now it holds pots in it , so if any of you keen gardeners out there have any ideas to share please email the pictures to me .email . i have loads of old pallet wood so anything of wood i.e flower boxes or just anything you have made to put in the garden will help to stop me getting bored . thanks gang . mark

Have a browse through Youngdaisydee`s Wacky blogs Mark, they are really good, the ideas and things to make range from the sublime to the ridiculous and kept us all entertained last winter for ages, just put her name in the search bar and go from there.....

Mark even if you do just as much as you can manage it's got to be better than nothing and being out in the garden is such a tonic and a little browse around this forum is also a tonic !!
