I would love one of these in my living room. Flat, streamlined, efficient, cheaper to run than burning coal and logs in my open fireplace. My thinking was that when I come in from work on a cold night I could quickly heat one room instead of having the heating on in an empty house just so it's not freezing when I get in.
I got a quote. £2,600 for fitting the fire (not much difference between gas or electric) plus I'd have extra expense removing the brick fireplace and getting the wall replastered.
Spring might finally be here :-) Since I'm now on holiday I have time to wander round my garden. I spotted this wee ladybird crawling in my soil this morning.
My tree that produces apple like fruit is in full red/orange bloom. No idea if it's a quince, crab apple or persimmon tree. Will need to get some advice on it. Any one recognise it?
Lots of plants are starting flower and lots of wee jobs are needing done in the garden. Lovely time of year :-)
