Well the kennel has been returned, thanks to my Uncle John who drove it down from London. Unfortunately it seems to have sustained some damage in all it’s transportation: the ‘sedan chair’ carrying poles have disappeared along with the bubble wrap. Angels and cherubs have lost their wings – very sad (as Trump might say!) Today I’m working on repairs ahead of the Kenton Flower Festival next week, in which it will be on show. The theme is Cycle and Recycle – Kenton Church, Devon July 26 – 29.
It’s interesting to look again at a work after a gap of some months. There is far more surface glue on the kennel than I remember. I worked on it through the dark days of January, often under spotlights. Now in the clear light of July, little imperfections are more visible!!
