away day!

I unpacked the kiln first thing this morning, and re-packed a glaze firing...but instead of lighting the kiln, I had a day off!

I spent the day in the Abergavenny garden with friends, weeding, lifting (and washing) the last of the parsnips and planting onion setts. It has been a glorious day spent well in good company and a meal shared as the afternoon turned a little chilly.

Sure hope your camera is up and running soon. Would have enjoyed Abergavenny gardens and seeing the glazed platters. Can't wait.

Good for you.

A glorious spring like day - ideal for being out and about :)

Onion sets in already? Maybe I'd better get out there are start on mine. I only grow reds, and still have a few kilos from last year's crop.

I'd hang fire on the red onion sets- too early and they just bolt....mind you, you're probably ahead of us in gardening climate terms.

I don't blame you being out in this gorgeous weather, you've been so busy lately. Can't wait to see pictures of everything xx

I stumbled across your blog when Googling images of 'Cwmcarn Allotments'; I shall visit more often :)
My grandfather used to have an allotment on Nantcarn Road and I am currently in the middle of writing about him. Your pictures have brought lots of lovely memories back to me, thank you :)
From your newest reader, in Abercarn!

A day off well deserved -- nothing better to revive the spirit (to me) than working in the dirt is there?
