Dumped by the bins...Now in adding a little sparkle in the yard. The sun hits it and it is like a glitter ball.

8 May, 2012

 

and all from things nobody wanted...

I thought you were a postman, Pim? Have you been moonlighting??? In more means than one, I mean! lol :))

8 May, 2012

 

Lol..Sick noted Karen :( Only ever had three sick days in my whole working life before.

8 May, 2012

 

Oh, so sorry Pim...I didn't mean to be flippant, please forgive? :/

I have a friend who's a bin-man and have often benefitted from his 'finds'...

8 May, 2012

 

looks really good Pims...

8 May, 2012

 

Thanks SL..

Karen nothing to forgive...Flippant is my middle name ;)
They actually SELL things at our big rubish tip now, people throw so much away...I can't believe how many childrens toys are put out and there is nothing wrong with them at all.

8 May, 2012

 

Before I left Scotland Pim, (and this is apart from my friend's 'finds'), the local tip had a strange and wonderful 'grotto'...full of things that were free to a good home...

How times change...

8 May, 2012

 

...Lol, Pimpernel, do you collect also toys? Lol. Please! I have this deviation too, lol.
Your garden is beautiful. So beautiful, that I cannot believe, those are all "bin children"...

8 May, 2012

 

I don't have any toys Kat :( One of my Quinces was thrown out as rubbish and those hebe's at the front of the picture....

8 May, 2012

Anyway, ladies, I think Pimpernel proved here that he is the BEST gardener. As for a real gardener living plant cannot be a garbage.

10 May, 2012

 

Thanks Kat...I have a free pond arriving tomorrow, another unwanted thing. Just have to fit it in.

10 May, 2012

Sticki...Can you see my tiny new Acer in there...I am going to Bonsai it...it is under the red bonsai acer. "little princess" is it's name.

12 May, 2012

 

aha! bright green leaf with a red edge???

that will be really beautiful, i dont think i have the patience for bonsai even though i adore them

there were lots of acers for sale yesterday, but even quite small ones were really pricey

be interesting to follow the progress of your bonsai

12 May, 2012

 

Tesco have got 5ft olive trees for £20 and two Acers for £20 as well

12 May, 2012

 

tesco's in the market now!!!!!!!! they dont like being left out do they!!!!!!

saw some lovely olive trees yesterday too, amazing!! my garden is not warm enough for those though ~ i think they need blue sky!!

12 May, 2012

12 May, 2012
