A notebook on a wall…

Hello from Label Land!

I’ve been thinking about what to do with my pile of plastic plant labels….

I’ve been thinking about it for far too long…they’ve just been sitting and sitting and sitting, waiting in that limbo between a good idea and the dustbin.

Sometimes, just sometimes the planets align and the something gets done.  In this case, the Babety slept longer than usual, I had found a particularly lovely builders merchant who could cut bits of plywood to size for me, and I had run out of Curb Your Enthusiasms to watch….So I got off my bottom and collected a hammer and some pins

Attached some plywood to the side of my shed:

…and started banging in labels.

It’s a can of worms, you understand, because the ply is forgiving in some places, and hard as nails in others.  I ended up using drawing pins but it’s still a nightmare.  Of course, I should start again, using pin-board and finish the thing in half an hour, but I’m desperate to have it outside, and pin-board would rot most horridly…so I shall carry on.

What do you do with your plant labels?

Do you make umbrellas out of them?

Or perhaps jewellery?

Or are you a non-hectic, well balanced person who throws them in the bin?
