The gentleman in the above picture was carding wool and the lady spinning it into yarn.
I treated myself to this little ceramic garden from a pottery stall. They are unique designs by a lady called Roz Lowe. You can put a little essential oil, like lavender or lemongrass around the edge of the pot to give off a wonderful calming aroma. The plants inside grow and just need a little spray of water every so often to keep fresh. I think it will look fine on our nature table.
