My main job this weekend was staining all the wood for the raised sides for the veggie beds and for the fence around the tyres, we have to fence everything we can to protect things from the deer. We have Roe deer and Muntjac both roaming wild in the area, and we've been warned by people in the village that they eat EVERYTHING!
And then by the end of the day it all came together, the fence went up, all the raw edges were touched up with woodstain and it now looks like this.
So all in all another good weekends work, progress is being made all round. We ended Sunday with a small bonfire (as is now traditional) and a couple of glasses of Cinzano in front of Monty Halls Great Escape ( a brilliant tv programme).

Today doesn't look much better outside, so I am going to get stuck in and finish the spareroom. Then it will be time for the best bit........playing at adding all the finishing touches and titivating and twiddling until I am happy with the look. I will turn a blind eye to the stack of boxes in the corner and stand back and enjoy the fruits of my labours. Having the stock helps........I can pick and choose just what I need to finish the room, after all I only bought what I wanted myself in the first place!!
Have a good day. (If you want to see a few more pics of the shop, click onto the link at the top of this page for Lavender's Blue)

It's starting to look really good and we have 5 wild ducks now using the pond. On Francines instruction I am going to feed them at the same time each evening with just a little bit of brown bread, to keep them eager to use the pond. Although I have heard that they always come back to the same place each year to breed, so maybe they've been here a lot longer than us!!
There are two ducks in this picture.....honest!!
