This week we have had a wet walk through the woods, in between showers there was some sunshine and spotted one red admiral sunning itself.
L enjoying a walk through the stream.
At our allotment entrance one of the plot holder has planted loads of sunflowers, they look stunning and such a warm greeting as you come into the car park.
Our blue moon apple tree has done well again, it produces loads of apples especially considering it is a column tree, really hope we can get another one.
Right at this moment I can't remember the name of our other apple tree but they are lovely to and love the contrast in colours from the purple red to the pinkish red.
We have loads of marrows again this year
and a nice selection of butternut squash.
We were looking at apples and what happens to them if they are left out in the air and then what would happen, if you put them in different liquids. L enjoyed cutting up the apples and then drawing pictures in her journal.
On our walks we have collected a selection of conkers (great for doing sums with) and lots of leaves, so we had a morning leaf rubbing, really must remember to take crayons and paper with us to do some bark rubbing. L has also been adding lots of animal drawings to her journal and adding different facts that she knows about the animals.
Snap dragons are flowering well.
and my nicotiana are also out in flower.
On a crafting front, slowly knitting a jumper for a one year old, all in 4 ply so not the quickest knit going. Dressmaking was going well until I managed to muck up the neckline, when I added the bias binding, it has stretched horribly on one side, to make it worse the other side is perfect! So slowly unpicking it all and back to the drawing board with it.
