.............photos of car boot finds.
The weather was fine Saturday morning so off down the A140 to Needham Market - 1st car boot sale of the season.
They've had lots of stone put down over the winter to fill many holes around the site but it was still very muddy in places. Quiet a lot of people there both selling and buying but nothing from my list except things for the grandchildren, I think arriving at 8.15 was too late for the best finds!
Sticker books, washable felt pens, a scrapbook and a magnetic doll dressing kit. This is similar to one I found for Florence for last Christmas although hers was princess clothes. Florence loved hers so I shall put this away for Willow for Christmas this year. I also found a few items of clothing for baby Arthur.
Finally I bought a pack of 6 Sweet William plants and as the weather was good after getting home I was able to get them planted in my mini cutting garden. There were a couple of Hollyhock plants that hadn't lasted so there was room for the Sweet Williams. Just need to get the Gladioli bulbs in when the weather has warmed up a bit. The Alstromeria have survived the winter and the tulip bulbs have produced lots of leaves. I must remember to dig them all out this Autumn, sort the best bulbs, feed the bed and replant.
There were a few hours of sunshine on Sunday so I finished weeding the Veg. beds and potted up the cucumber seedlings (5 Louisa) and 6 tomato seedlings (Ildi). I brought the wallpaper/carboot table into the conservatory to hold all the plants as they get bigger. There's no electric to the greenhouse so all the early stuff has to be in the conservatory where I can plug in a frost-buster heater if needed - hopefully NOT needed - I don't fancy snow or hard frosts now things are growing.
