April Showers

Stripping and sanding floorboards and skirting boards today. I took all the removable and loose ones out to the garden to work on. It cuts down on the dust and fumes in the house.

It's so cold right now I'm doubtful the seedlings on the kitchen windowsill would survive being potted on in the greenhouse. I may try making some room for pots around the house and keep them indoors a little longer. Either that or I try heating the greenhouse, but that's not really an option due to environmental and economical concerns.
