At last, Spring is around the corner and it can’t come too soon! At the time of writing the garden looks like a winter wonderland from the window but everyone is fed up with the biting cold wind, the snow and squelchy, sticky mud. Mum can’t wait for the weather to improve so work can begin on new paths and many other jobs waiting to be started.
We always have cats and dogs awaiting new homes, just now we have rabbits too ranging from 8 months to 4 years. Some in pairs, others are singles looking for a companion – new arrivals, 2 year old Fleur and Florence seen here. Leave a message on the answerphone or call in during open hours for more information.
Our talented crafters send a big thank you for all the materials and wool you have donated. These have been used to make Mothers’ Day and Easter items for our Gift and Craft Fair on 10th March at Whatfield Village Hall, Rectory Road, IP7 7QU. The Washbrook and Copdock Stitchers and Knitters will be there too, doors open at 11am.
Next is our Bargain Book Sale at the Community Centre, Timperleys, Hintlesham, IP8 3PS, from 11am on 24th March. There will also be pictures, DVDs, CDs and some furniture, just to make it more interesting. If you have some quality items to sell, phone 01206 263269 to book a table at our Spring Fair at Long Melford on 22nd April.
Right now the kitchen Rayburn is much more inviting than the view of the garden so I’m off to snuggle up in a woolly blanket that was knitted for me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
