3rd birthday at the zoo

We went to the zoo, had a lovely day but I just can't stand to see the animals caged up, the lioness was beautiful but the photos of her are all so sad.

K stroked the python the hothouse lady had out on display, no fear at all.

Hard work

It is such hard work being snuggled up on mamas back in a wrap that i think I'll just lie here and have a little bit more sleep. HE group this week was felting. Inbetween running wround like he was being brought up in a wild wolf pack K made some felt balls (with some help!)
and a flat piece of felt with a butterfly :) OK I did the white base layer and he decided what picture he wanted, placed the colours on and did the rolling with me. He was however distracted by bubble wrap and running around like a wind up toy.

So after a busy Samhain we are beginning to settle into the darkest time. The small veg plot has been emptied and the soil turned over. The Yule fruit trees have been planted and the greenhouse tomatos have been taken out.

We have a huge pile of scrap wood and old chicken houses waiting to be set on fire :) and then we can start to think about clearing the two large veg beds in the field. we need to get at least one ready for next year.

Logs are being stockpiled but they need drying out for a few months.
When I went to check the trees today I found the plum with new leaves already and two of the dirty 'stones' at the base of the pear had been washed by the rain and were actually quartz :)
