I haven’t been taking my camera out much this past week, what with it not being amphibious and all that, so todays Country Kids will start by showing you some nests that Cubs Grandad found when chopping down a bush (don’t worry they had already been abandoned). The first one was just fascinating – it was a soft and springy cocoon made from moss and fine twigs, so perfect it was totally awe-inspiring. It was lined with feathers and fur, some of which looked as though it had come from my dog, no doubt shed as he flies around the place after his ball.
The other one looked less cosy but equally as enthralling. it’s so circular and solid – nature is truly wonderful.
Today i did manage to get a little picture on my phone, in between the raindrops – we got soaked to the skin but had so much fun, my little boy really has revolutionised my life and activities, I just follow his lead and he opens up new and forgotten worlds.
This is my favourite though, my little boy singing the Barney ‘I love you’ song under the canal bridge as he plops stones into the canal. he likes to sing under the bridge for the acoustics!
