The nets are up

by shiny,

Due to the pandemic lockdown, I can't go to the hardware store to get things. I've been in semi-isolation since the start of march, and we've been in nationwide lockdown since last week. I needed to set up the nets to keep out the white butterfly. I've had to be creative and i've had to recycl...
