Stationery Six on Saturday – April 28th

I’m back with a slightly off-piste Six this week, as I’ve started a ‘little’ project which isn’t yet ready to feature on this blog! So, welcome to my  Stationery Six on Saturday… that’s my pick of 6 stationery items for the allotment, not stationary as in a Six on Saturday which is standing still!

Six on Saturday – March 31st – seeds

So much for the weather improving – it’s been wet, wet and a bit more wet this week (and forecast even more wet over the Easter weekend).

The ground is far too wet to dig, so I had a rummage through my tub of seeds to sort out what I can plant once the weather improves (again)…. here’s my  Six (seeds) on Saturday!
