The finished Inro and matching Netsuke
It is a beautiful afternoon but a little too chilly to sit outside in the sunshine. I wish my house faced the other way around as it is lovely and warm in the porch but perishingly cold in the conservatory. It will be another month before it is warm enough to sit through there. The garden does look pretty though with all the spring bulbs, pansies and primula popping up everywhere. It is almost time to get the propagator up from the cellar to make a start on my seeds and cuttings. Then the porch will be really nice for growing the plants. It does create a lot of hard work as I take them back out of the porch every night to stop them getting too cold in there. anyway, my post title was not about gardens so here is the completed Inro and Netsuke. I should actually have put the Netsuke on the other way around as it would be upside down if it were to be used in the traditional Japanese way.
