Zigs, I have no idea where she was from. I just know that she came to the states and cooked for the railroad crews. She died years before I was born. I would have loved to know her.

Aww, that's a shame :(

Found the grave of a great grandad of mine near Salisbury, he worked on Churches like I did too :)

Zigs, your great grandfather was a mason, and some of his knowledge and skill must have been passed down to you. I wonder if my love of cooking and baking came from grandmother. There may be more to this DNA thing than we thought!

There might be something in that :)

how cool is that!
(I'll take that table when you get tired of it!)
It looks like that table is totally neglected but actually I have quite a bit of work in it to get it aged like that. It was a hideous white when I got it and I wanted it to look old not dainty. After many tries I finally achieved the look I was going for and now spray it every month with Ospho which stops the rust but doesn’t remove it. (y)

Our "lollypop acer" in our small font garden.
Each winter, I prune up to a foot off it all round, to restrict its growth and to keep its shape. It's about 20 ft tall.
It didn't go very pink this year, but there's blossom on it already.

It's been here since I moved it from the back garden in 1987, when I was building our tea-house, as it was in the way. It was right where I intend putting the steps.
It survived being moved mid-summer.
