I am a woman "in the flower of my age". My great hobby is making silver jewellery out of silver clay and sterling silver. Sometimes I sell some too, because I cannot use it all myself.
Other interests are SEVEN gorgeous grandchildren - nine with my husband's two, gardening, books, kayaking, photo...
I write this blog in English to keep up the language after my retirement. I was a teacher in English and French for 18 years (so I ought to have a blog in French too...) and assistant head at a school for 15 years.
My second blog shows my handmade silver jewellery.
Australian laurel, Pittosporum, has to be kept away from the frost. (The last picture.)The same goes for figs and eucalyptus. We have a little room on the balcony with a frost gard radiator.
My pots outdoors have got their "winter dresses". My cyklamen on the balcony stands a good deal of minus degrees - the question is how many?
The barrel by the entrance has already got a little Christmas tree, that has survived there for a couple of years. I add two different scimmias and a few red cornel branches. (I just love them! You can put them everywhere - directly into the ground if you want to!) Some nice stones added of course - very nice material - stands the frost all the time!
