It must be love...

Hey girls, just a quick 'hello' as im off to feed the cows with Mr P in a minute. Im so excited at the new treasure he brought me home this week, a HUGE belfast sink! Ive taught him well, oh yes, he found it thrown on a rubble heap in a farmyard and immediately thought of me, he rang to say, 'those old sinks, are they worth much?' my reaction-Hell yeah-to me anyway!
He even carried it half a mile(at least so im told)accross a field, almost gave himself a hernia carrying it-its very very heavy....now my dilemma is what to plant in it?!
It must be love x

That's brilliant. My hubby did the same for me a few years ago..he got me three from a farmer who was selling them. I sold one and kept two. I am thrilled with mine! Love 'em!

Hi Kirsty, How jealous am I !!!!! What a cracking sink, what are you gonna plant in it?

I haven't forgot our swap by the way, I've just been so busy and a bit lost for ideas, but as soon as I've got it all together I'll post it off.

Rubys mamma x said...

Ha i am lucky arent i? All the other bits and pieces are dotted along that wall anyway, Mr P just popped it there temporarily but i think i like it there....i think i'll fill it with bulbs in october for a great show in the spring...but not sure in the meantime. We're a bit overrun with herbs so definitley not those pixie...id like to stick to a couple of colours...maybe pink and purple or greens...hmm i shall have to see what bargain plants i can get at the bootsale on sunday x

Lydia said...

Lucky you, hope you have been very nice to Mr P for finding & carrying it all that way... What good a man - my G would have just left it...

I have got a Belfast sink in the kitchen; I would love one in the garden.
What about some colourful salad leafs in there, you can get the ones that grow the more you pick them, you can always add some flowers as well.

Thanks for the gossip about the shop; I can’t wait for it too open, I can see me going in there a lot.

Love Lou xxx

Herbs - thats what i'd plant. I loved your previous (holiday ) post - you really do have the patience of a saint to post all those photos, but I did appreciate every last one of them. Truly beautiful.

Take care. x

Hello Kirsty. It's it nice when a husband is that thoughtful! Mine surprised me with a piece of driftwood the size of a railway sleeper. He found it on a beach, carried the huge driftwood back to the car and surprised me with it! Going to incorporate it in our garden at some point.
Have a great weekend!

Sorry I've been quiet again - am hopeless I know, just been buried beneath work designing the new Cottontails website. Have a look if you get a mo, same address: http://www.cottontailsbaby.co.uk

LOVE the sink. That's a good man you have there, lol!

Me and my chap have just been choosing a belfast sink for the new kitchen - I haven't moved in there yet but it's happening very soon and am so excited about the new kitchen. We went for a double sink in the end. Not from a field and cost a fortune!!

Lots of love

Nice belfast!

I'm glad you stopped by as its reminded me that I wanted to ask you if CK has opened in Winchester yet?

The plant is a euphorbia. There are many types one of which is a weed (small in comparison).

Hope you are enjoying this lovely sunshine!

summerfete said...

hello again!
On closer inspection of pic. I can see fennel which smells of aniseed when you rub it, it's the fluffy thing on the left.
Then there's lemon balm under the rose.

If I'm still not right I'll take another look!! LOL
