French stove Deville 'Lily'

On a trip to see my cousin in Lyon, he showed me a beautiful 'Lily' Deville wood burning stove dating from early 1900's that he was restoring to its former glory. It really was a wonderful tactile thing to see and touch. I am going to find out more about these delightful creatures - yes they do seem to have a life.

He also showed me some of the original catalogues and manuals which again were lovely to hold and smell. It is a very pleasing thing to discover wonderful things that have been around for many years yet have been eluded by your world. So many questions - how, when, where were they made and by whom and what were their original settings. Perhaps a chateau in the Ardèche or a small town house in Provence.

I am off to raid the internet for answers and the biscuit jar.

I have re-vamped my creativeapaces.co.uk again using a Joomla 3.6.4. Please take a look creativespaces.co.uk

The Gardeners Guild has been a great help in feeling connected to other gardeners.

Recently I went on a course by Alan Sargent on Developing a consultancy business. Alan is a  natural communicator and the course has given me some great insights as to where my horticultural career might go.

We have been doing some bench grafting which is part of an assessment. It was really great fun. The fruit tree planting turned out to be a perfect morning in the Worcestershire countryside with frost on the ground and plenty of sawing of branches.
