Another Garden Dog

This fellow looks more like a BBC-presenter-gardener than a putter-around-the-allotment gardener. Takes all kinds, right?!

I am really having fun with these faux Fair Isle sweaters. Although, embroidering on cashmere is not easy.

In case you are wondering, he holds his basket with a hook and eye fastener. The hook is sewn into the cuff of his shirt. Here are all the things in his trug/garden basket-

And here is a random photo from my walk today. I had to show you because WOW, that tree looked like it was on fire!

Gardening Hound

Have you done any pandemic projects? I have. Mine has been to propagate some plant babies… actually a whole lot of plant babies. I have a tiny forest of myrtle trees that I hope to attempt to train into topiary (eventually) and many many baby streptocarpus plants which will hopefully bloom one day. Then I can figure out which plant I took the cuttings from since I forgot to label them! Anyway, what does that have to do with this gardening dog? When I wanted to see if I could make the baby streptocarpus, I watched a few videos. My favorites were from the UK, some old fellow puttering around in his greenhouse/shed explaining as he went. And here he is in dog form.

He’s got to have a hat because it is cold out in the shed. And a warm (cashmere) fair isle vest under his corduroy jacket.

All his stuff-
