Pear shaped


The young farming mum, Jo Langtry who made my barbed wire Waratah that my sister gave me for my birthday recently discovered I had shown it off on my blog. The artist apparently knows my friend Heather down here at the coast and they got chatting and 'isn't it a small world' my blog was mentioned and yep it was her work. I have asked my sister to organise a few more Waratahs and a big barbed ball to spear them into to make a more sculptured display of Jo's work. She's run out of barbed wire so it will be a few weeks away but she did send this lovely photo of a 7 foot high pear to my sister, love it, she's also working on pear gates, now I'd really like to see them. This artist was once an accountant what a waste of her creative talent, bet she's glad she went and learnt to weld and design. Anyway I still don't have all her details for you but I will get them, Jo and my sister are having a Christmas party tonight, they belong to the same Ag n Chat group, farming wives who are eager to learn and support each other in all aspects of rural life.
