Something to do while I am waiting for the supplies to come in.
Dan and Kalpina with completed sign – which now sits in their foyer.
95% of mosaic materials were donated by local businesses and friends
Our first batch of donated supplies from The Stone and Ceramic Warehouse. Now we can get started!
Jonathan Pearce of Blueberry Builders supplied the wood – Alan got the jig-saw out and we are ready to go for our first piece.
The Butterfyl is completed – we have our first mosaic.
Westerhope Tiles in Northumberland got on board and donated a huge amount of tiles
The North and South working together,
2nd piece – small bird
We are on a roll – Sunshine Rainbow
A pallet arrives from Peter and Helen Hutchingson at European Heritage Tiles and Flooring.
No stopping me now – Dragonfly
Kate & Joe at Mosaic Heaven are my regular suppliers. They really got on board with this project and contributed a tremendous amount.
Bring on the bling – Gliiter Stepping Stone
Alan putting up the Dragonfly
One cold, wet Saturday in March, Nita and Gill (friends and now volunteer gardeners)……
……..visited Springbridge Supplies in Denham to buy the soil – who kindly gave us a very generous discount.
The soil arrives on an even colder March morning.
It has to be on the beds that morning before the children arrived – it is very cold!
Gill and Rosanna start on first bed
That’s an improvement!
Smiths Nurseries in Denham supplied all the plants, again at a very generous discount.
The Log Cabin in Bloom!
Nita and Gill taking a well earned rest
Severe cold and wet followed by too hot and dry. Our bed has survived!

Everything thing in the garden is looking lovely
