Blue-tit Nesting, Spring Blossoms and An Old Wall

11 Apr

1  Over the winter months, I have been collecting the fluff from the hoover and stuffing it into a peanut feeder. I put it out for the birds yesterday and this morning caught a Blue tit collecting from it and taking the beautifully soft material back to our lighthouse nesting box. What a delight!  Click on any photo for more detail.

2    We took a flat walk in Devoran today. It was good to get some relatively easy exercise. I paid rather badly for my walk into Redruth the other day. For those who don’t know Redruth, for us there is a steep hill down into town and then the main street goes up just as steeply. Coming home of course, is another steep downhill and a further steep uphill! It felt fine at the time but my new hip ached and my yet-to-be-fixed-hip was not at all happy.
Our walk rewarded us with some beautiful fresh Spring flowers – the May blossom was fabulous and we saw our first Bluebells.

3     Taking a side path, we noticed an old building which I went into to explore. What a fabulous place for kids to play to use their imaginations.

A number of people have asked me for patterns I have used so I have created a new page called Creative Projects. Do have a look! The pattern for the KnitzTanzania baby outfit is there and the page will grow.

    I love the idea of leaving nesting material out for the birds. The bird house is lovely. SHaron x

      It’s the first time I have done it and I’ll do it again. It is such fun to watch. When I saw the lighthouse in the garden centre I just had to have it! It is so quirky and different and I love how it looks in the garden,
      . The Bluetits like it too. 🙂

    Birds of feather, fluff together.

    Takes exception, to fabulous place for children to play and use their imagination. Now confess, you weren’t bitten as well.

    like to explore…what a place to check out…
    I have just read this year about leaving items that the birds can use for nests…I will try to contribute next year!

    The house you discovered reminds me of a place I read about in one of my favorite novels, The Book of Lost Things. This would entertain my imagination as well!
