This warmer weather has got me inspired and I'm in full gardening mode at the moment. I love it, its one of those things that when I'm out there I completely loose time. I can think Ive been there for 10 minutes when in actual fact Ive been pottering for two hours. So, a pond for the tadpoles that are very nearly frogs and a chicken coop for the chicks that are to arrive in two weeks have all been put on project status for the long weekend. I have been a bit hesitant about the pond thing but I figure that it can only encourage 'the good guys' in terms of pest management for the garden. Hopefully the water will attract Dragon-flies - apparently they can eat up to 8,000 mozzie larvae (Oh a mozzie free summer would be great) and encourage the frogs to breed.
This week I was also inspired by my friend Tracie and made a bird mobile for the boys. They loved it - they wanted to pull it, prod it and pull it apart. I ended up making extra birds to hang in their room. I think this warmer weather has brought me out of my craft slumber/hibernation and I have started on a couple of new projects. However, I really need to get back to the other few or more I started and have yet to finish. I can just see me giving Myles his quilt at his 21st.
