Re: Can we show off our crafts?
Your post made me smile (and blush) inwardly....

Well, as (some of) you may know, we had a pretty bad drought this year and I think that ended up taking a big toll, bringing about plant-demise a bit prematurely. So I had to, ah.... pull my last (barely) surviving sweetest tomato plant out by the roots and you know, I was talking to her (as I had all those long weeding and watering evenings) and I was apologising by the end of it all and instead of stuffing her into the wheelie bin, I took her out back by the river and placed (not threw!) her with the Christmas Trees Of Past.
And I may have felt a tear.
Now this my friends, this is why I can never be a farmer
or work in a kill room
or be a doctor
or a vet
or a soldier
or a cop
or a villain
