Remind Me Never To Take Up Whittling!!!!

Postby Patricia » Sat Aug 04, 2007 6:21 pm

My latest & last entry...taken in my newest garden/BBQ area...given our past drought & the necessity to find hardier & drought resistant plants I have opted for various Phormiums in my newest garden area...after spending hours digging two holes into the log ( I wanted to utilise the old hardwood log as a planter) .. I have decided that I will never be a full time "whittler"...the steel wheel I sourced from our local "tip" recycling shop....Thee your not the only one who wades through these centres :lol: love finding these old treasures!!

I like that - very simple but effective - two hours you must have LOTS of patience

Love the colours and the wheel - I want one :cry: :cry:
