Works in progress: another baby blanket, this time made of crocheted granny squares in a rainbow of colours in baby yarn. It will be for another teacher friend who is expecting in the Autumn.
I am pleased to say that the Grey Wagtails are still with us, building their nest. They chirp and sing to each other whilst they are nesting, both bringing material to the nest. At the beginning it was moss and strips of grass which they have woven into a perfect oval shape and then they have lined it with cream coloured hair or wool. We have had a couple of occasions when a blackbird has landed in the same climber and the Wagtails didn't like it, so I'm hoping that it doesn't scare them away.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.
Normal blogging will be resumed very soon. Jane x
