victorian gardening


I've been looking through a fantastic book filled with gardening tools from days gone by, strange pointy things which look beautiful but which we somehow manage without these days.  Lots are still very much needed however, but are now often not quite so stylish as their handmade older relatives.  Some just sound painful and are not for the squeamish...

I love it too, I bet all hairy caterpillars are running a mile!

I'm glad you were happy with your little sewing machine, sorry it's taken me until now to contact you but my computer is playing up something rotten, I've been sending mails and they aren't going anywhere! x
