The first blue is hardly visible but of you look closely you can just see the backside, legs and tail of this blue tit as it disappears into the nest box for the zillionth time that day.
The hole is small so the little legs flail about while it pushes itself in and five minutes later its off leaving the tiniest peeping sounds coming out of the box. Thrilling to have this little drama going on just outside the kitchen window. I wish I could see inside.
The next blue is surprisingly still visible in June.
This one surrounds the 'Lodge', a body of water in our village used by anglers, and now more accessible to walkers or people who just want a stroll in the sun and not the mud.
The third blue is mixed with pink..
I spent the day yesterday developing this. I've made little purses before but people always ask if I have any for an i phone so here it is.
There are lots of things to take into account when you know the value of one of these phones. For their price they are amazingly fragile and vulnerable so I had to think of a way of keeping it in the case, so there's a velcro tab ....
and an easy way of getting it out of the case so there's a cut out corner.
This is my husbands i phone and he has a rubbery sort of cover for his phone so the case will hold it with or without that cover. Without above, and with below and in the closed picture at the top. The velcro tab is adjustable to accommodate the extra thicknes.
My only reservation is the pink.
But I love the lining.
Did I mention the hook too?
Now, obviously my husband won't be using this and he paid a vast amount of money for the rubbery cover, mass-produced of course.
I wonder if anyone will pay a mere £18 for my individualy made, carefully developed and totally unique version?
Well its 'Art and Garden' next weekend so we'll see.
You may want to look at Art and Garden 2008 and 2009 by using the links. I think 2008 gives a better picture.
You may even visit if you live near enough.
I haven't checked the weather forecast for next weekend.
