Re-discovery and transitions

We had a little bit of rain on Monday night which was very welcome, but which did make us think it might be worth a look at my little bit of whimsy that I had planted in our vegetable garden a little while ago.

I had checked them on the Sunday afternoon and it was all a bit dry and dull, but the rain did make me think it was worth another check.

So today, when I was out in the garden gathering spinach and rhubarb, seemed like a good time to do it.

I scrabbled around with my hands and happily re-discovered my wee parcels.  I took them out and popped them to dry on the rusty wall. Lots of happy photos.






As you can see I had happily found my five.  Barry queried me and asked weren't there seven?  I said hmmmm, maybe.  I came and looked at my blog and yep, there were two more to find! Laugh.

So he kindly did some major scrabbling around and we re-discovered the spare pair thank goodness.




So here they all are sunning themselves to dry out the dark bits, and when they are dry I shall safely dust them off and see what lies beneath...

It was quite sunny and warm, and occasionally the sun went behind a cloud. This is a real close-up shot when the sun was out; amazing how the light dazzled in...


I'll keep you up to date as the transition continues; such a lovely thing to observe.

    1. They had fired out nicely by this afternoon Jac - a little crispy in fact! I shall start dusting them careful in the next day or so...quite the adventure!

    1. Indeed Sharmon - they got wet again and have to dry out again now - I wasn't prepared for a summer shower, so it will be bait longer than hoped!

    1. It's one of those funny things Debbie - I love how they look and photograph on the rust; and then have to remind myself there is more to be done!

    1. I'm so glad Barry reminded me there were seven Mo! My digging was rather poor I fear - lucky he was on hand. I am looking forward to the next steps too.

  9. As lovely as the bundles are on the outside, I can't help but wonder if you've opened them yet to see what the insides hold?

    1. I left them out sunning and drying J, then they got caught in a storm so they're all wet again needing to dry off again, and then get brushed off etc, so I can honestly say, no I haven't yet looked inside (but I will!)
