The kettle is an Aga kettle (soon to be Ebayed) that DH found when he was tidying the garage. I'd acquired it from somewhere in the hopes of teaming it with an Aga at some stage. (Dream, dream, dream.) That stage is not to be (saving energy and all that) so the kettle will have to go. The shells were picked up on St. Annes beach on fish and chips day. My climbing plant is sitting on top of a pastry cutter because the window sill collects the moisture that drips down the window.
