New homes

I really enjoyed building my bug box so I’m going to restock on materials and have a go at making some for friends.  I think I can be trusted using the power tools on my own now, although they can be a bit scary!

Bug Box

Flicking through a gardening magazine I came across a photo of a bug box, crammed with bamboo and twigs, creating long tunnels, nooks and crannies and I thought how beautiful it looked.  So I set about making my own and this is how it turned out.

My first bug box

Low flying heron

Sitting in my garden late in the afternoon I noticed a large bird flying towards me.   I grabbed my camera and just snapped as it flew over.  Not a great shot but I love the way you can see it’s legs stretched out behind – beautifully aerodynamic.
