Another lovely festival and craft/creativity session at the Redcliffe botanical gardens "Whats cooking" event...thanks so very, very much to all who came along, you all truly make me happy.
Such amazing children-check out this great recycled felt leaf, so cute!
Aside from the happiness of being with such wonderful clever and creative children and adults this event brings me joy because I adore yarn bombing or 'dressing up' the gardens before the event. It's such fun!
Pink the galah was probably the most popular part of the display, I was also touched by how much the children responded to the fungi covered log.
I tried to slip in a little information here and there and I hope some of the kids will be telling their friends about how fungi can be all sorts of colours -they can even be blue!
I have been taking lots of photos for my conservation course work assignments, I need to gather images of weeds and native plants. So many weeds out there, I wish it was a little harder to find them! Anyway, of course I notice other things too while spending time outdoors. And it's such a healthy thing to be outdoors observing nature.
Isn't this a lovely butterfly? And can you find the tawny frog mouths in this picture? There are three tucked up in the tree...
So now last but not least here is some crochet inspiration!
I have made this beautiful hat by shy generous blogger Sarah Arnold, oh, probably over a dozen times now. It is a lovely spiralling easy to follow pattern,
it works up into a comfy hat and best of all is a
*free pattern* :o)
My photo doesn't really do it justice but you can get the idea...
Its called the 'divine hat' (and it really is!) So you can find the pattern here
