Woodcraft

Bee is helping put up fence posts for the fencing in of our chickens whilst the rest of the garden is done. After being fenced in one of our Light Sussex (white and black speckledy) hens died. We think this is Impacted Gizzard from eating too much long grass, so we are cutting it all down.

M and Bee in front of the fire making whistles from elder. Mostly involving vaguely authentic woodcraft with just a knife, but with the loppers to help where needed. M split and then badly split Bee’s first attempt (a reminder of Grandad pushing together Lego models to make them ‘stronger’), but soon a lovely whistle was completed. Now Bee wants to make a birch bark container like M has started!
