We made a quick trip to B&Q for a new bolt and latch for the back gate. I spotted this striped ceramic globe and had to have it for the deck :)
Since the New Year I have been trying to think and act more positively. One of my gurus, Susan Jeffers, is very fond of the "Laughing Buddha". I have several buddhas now and I can't look at them without feel cheered and encouraged to appreciate life and its many gifts. Here is my garden buddha by the pot pond.
