Around the garden

Here are some new pictures taken around the garden.
Yellow is the colour at the moment with the Accasia and wild mimosa trees in full bloom. With the late autumn sun shining on these lovely displays, everything has a golden glow.

Here is an old plough I picked up recently on my meander. I love these old farm implements and hope to add to my collection soon.

Plump Strawberry Pincushion in Pot

I made these early in the morning to go with my strawberry linen cloths for the Farmers market craft fair. In the early morning light they looked good enough to eat.
The strawberries sit in a little white aged pot surrounded by flocked leaves and real dried moss.
