Mish Mash

My post today is a bit of this and a bit of that. Just to keep you in the picture as to what we have been up to in the last few weeks.


This is my kitchen that is in the making.


Wow!! Look I have a kitchen sink! Isn't that great!


Very small, compact I think they call it. It still needs the doors fitted yet, but at long last I have somewhere to put dishes and food stuff. That's some more boxes that I have emptied.



The door that Geoff (Jude's husband. cariad in crete)made for us complete with handles.

These next 5 photo's are from my walks with Lucky, just around the village.



Someone's lean-to built into the rocks.



This is the seed head of one of these flowers. They look so pretty and they are quite big.



My quilt that I hope to finish this year!!! Just about 40 cms to go so it will fit our kingsize bed.


Remember the walnut photo's I posted a while back? Well just look at the size of these walnuts now.


The tree is covered in them, as you can see from the above photo,but the fact still remains, the tree is just far to big for this small garden and it still has loads of growing to do yet. Think I can see the chainsaw coming out after the harvest!


These are pumpkin seedlings that I have just planted. Notice the sticks? Cat protection.


I am using black polythene to try and save the water from evaporating as much. The above are courgettes. I am not sure how things will grow in this garden but if I feed them well I am hoping for quite a good harvest.


Sorry about the quality of this photo, but these globe artichokes have very, very sharp spines. In fact the whole plant has spines all over. Definitely a case of using gardening gloves when doing anything near them.


Sadly the beaches are no longer like this, alas the tourists have arrived.

That's it, I think I have brought you all up to speed on what's been happening here. Got to go, have some more boxes to empty.


WILL IT EVER END???????????

The seed head is amazing. You must also have tremendous patience to make a king size quilt with that technique.
