Time for a bit more frivolity in the school garden. This lot are to replace the mushrooms I made a while back.
The original mushroom plan was that they would be in place for only a few days. I really didn't expect that they would last as long as they did. After all, they were only made out of paper lunch bags. They proved remarkably weather resistant, and as far as I know not one was taken (I did have visions of them stabbing one another with the skewers) out of the garden.
Yesterday was spent mostly inside cutting butterfly shapes out of thin card, attaching sticky dots and pipe cleaner feelers. These were then glued on to bamboo garden stakes of varying heights, which will be placed randomly around the school garden. I do fib slightly as its not going to be that random. A bit of favouritism will come into play and the bulk of them will be outside my kids' classrooms.
I just have to summons up the energy to head off to the school. It's pretty cold outside and my bucket headed dog hasn't stopped crying all morning. I'm not sure how much is pain, discomfit from the horrible collar or stressing because most of the family is elsewhere for the day.
Either way, the constant whimpering is getting a bit hard to cope with. Poor old thing.
