Wiki tells us that a teapot is in fact a vessel used for steeping tea leaves or an herbal mix in boiling or near-boiling water, and for serving the resulting infusion which is called tea. What a load of rubbish! Most of us chuck in a few tea bags and away it goes, but I offer you to join me as I try and find out if the teapot maketh the tea or is it the other way around?!? So without further ado I bring you…

I am going to admit to something here that not a lot of people know: “I HATE GARDENING!” I love the look of a nice garden, but hate doing it.

But something I do love looking at and making myself is what is known as a cinder block planter. Simple to make, the plants are care free succulents and they look simply stunning. And with that in mind I bring you….
