It Was............

Sorry for the delay in posting, I got carried away decorating, and before you tell me off I took it easy, having breakfast, elevenses, lunch and afternoon stops! I needed to do something to get my motivation going again, as I was slowly sliding down that hole!
Anyway, you where all wrong its here.............




its a solar tube We have an inside bathroom and a neighbour had one of these solar tubes, we where so impressed we got one ourselves! They let in a load of light, the only downside is if your sitting on the loo, and a large bird (crow, seagule etc) flies over, for a split second it goes dark!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But to be honest if your looking at getting one I can highly recommend them!

My Ensete has grown some more


and a second one has sprouted.......


My propagator is not really big enough for my tropical plants, but is fine for getting the veg seeds off to a good start. Bearing this in mind I started looking for a new Prop, I liked the look of this one but at £100 it would remain a dream. So imagine my joy when I found one For Sale in the local ads paper at less than half the price!!! Yes I did get it, I will post pics when its set up in the greenhouse!

Off out to play now.

Solar tube, now that is something to seriously think about.
Your propagator seems to be working its magic, its good watching someone else growing their plants.

Have a great weekend.

What about is an albatross flew over or even stopped and landed on the tube, what would you do then????

A solar tube in bathroom, what a great idea! Spotlight on the loo, I wish I had one. I wouldn't worry about the albatross, I haven't seen one for years.

A solar tube, so that is what it was. BTW great idea for the bathroom that solar tube.

How are you, any damage by the storm? It was quite bad yesterday in Britain I saw on the news. We had a terrible storm too yesterday but not as bad as you!
