Weekend - bugs, slugs and all things reptile

We've had the boys stay this weekend, and being boys they love bugs etc.  Yesterday I summons up the energy to make a start on the leaves, with the help of Rachel.  The kids and Peter went on a bug hunt, the crested newt may be endangered but we have loads in our garden.  Rufus even plucked up the courage to hold a baby one.  The toad we found in one of the borders.











I finished Laurie's sweater, it a bit on the roomy side but he will at least grow into it!  Pattern info here

  1. Cosy looking sweater :) I hardly ever see newts but I don't have a pond or water nearby. I occasionally get toads in the garden, once we had a very fat one that tried to get into our chicken run and got stuck in the wire mesh. Took some persuading to get it wriggle back out again lol

  3. That sweater is awesome. It makes me smile to see the littles outside enjoying nature and not being afraid of bugs and snakes (and other critters!).
