|Please turn round!|
A few years ago I had a large flock of these on the Nyger seed on my bird table and suddenly they all left and this Goldfinch returned a few weeks ago with another one so maybe there will be young ones. By the way this was a full container a few days ago!!
I have had a busy week since the last blog I posted. Last weekend the whole family came to me for Sunday lunch and the grandchildren were particularly interested in this nest found in the garden.

They loved seeing how it was made; look at the top picture and see the thin strands of black polythene. Where did it come from; not my garden? There is some sheep's wool in the bottom picture.
On Friday (Good Friday) I was invited out to lunch by my son in Cambridge. We had an excellent meal but on the way home I had to 'sing for my supper' so to speak. "We must put the covers on the cricket pitch in case it rains," so a first for me as I helped to do this.

A photo was also taken of the three generations pushing the covers on. No doubt it will appear in my 2018 calendar! I love these calendars which I receive every year because it charts the children growing up and the adults getting older!!
My Easter weekend has been spent making things and a small amount of gardening. While I was in Cambridge my son gave me some of 'Dad's lilies'. My husband died in July 2005 and it was extremely hot and we had a big container of lilies on the patio and the smell was absolutely wonderful and my sons still remember those lilies so I gave them some each. Unfortunately my lilies died but the boy's have lived on and so I brought some bulblets back from Cambridge and planted them up.
Let 's hope they grow big with lots of lovely smelling flowers.
I decided that I had to make this kit up as Higham Piecemakers may make it in July.

Whilst I waited for the glue to set at each stage (I took my time to make sure everything was done right) I also made my April Mini Mania of 'Triangles'.

Finished with plenty of time to spare - hooray. Oh and I have cut out hospital pyjamas and gowns as well for Pyjama Fairies, just got to make them up.
Phew - back to normal tomorrow!!
