Got You.




This Ferret had been seen next door so other neighbour, the keenest trapper, set a trap a week ago and finally this got caught overnight on our bottom garden down near the estuary. They are vicious killers and eat birds eggs. It is no more. It's a pity they are such a pest and bad predator as it has amazing fur.( and deadly teeth and claws )

 A storm is forecast so I picked the first proper daffodil that was out - called Tahiti, and some of the jonquils and paper whites.
 The kitchen now smells very much of jonquils.
 Yesterday I planted this new camellia called Itty bit. I had it at the orchard and know its a good one that flowers for many months and is pickable with its quite tiny flowers.

 Also I planted a new rose. Using the hustler to pull,  R took out 8 more box hedge plants to make a wide bed space with less root competition and more area beside the house  for me to put in  a very healthy looking Abraham Darby plant. 
( looking forward to the great perfume )

 Sewing since I finished the coasters has been making some more letters for my alphabet. 37 so far.
They are mini quilts really, measuring 6"
These are the components for a letter C.
 A front fabric, an backing fabric, a square of batting, a length of binding and a letter shape cut out of fabric with firm iron on. Using this type of bonding the letter needs to be reversed. It is then ironed on,  machine stitched,  bound and hand quilted.
 In order to make more sentences and family names I am making more  upper case and also lower case letters.
 When not forming a hung up banner, grandson  4 3/4 likes to make words he knows how to spell especially names. I need a few more letters for our long surname.

Here, some people keep ferrets as pets - I believe.

Thanks for your birthday wishes. I can't believe I'm 70!

Your plants and sewing look lovely as usual.

When I was out west visiting my son a racoon came visiting one night, broke into the chicken coop and tore one of his chickens to bits - talk about savage and vicious! Nature is not all wildflowers and birdsong...
That itty bitty is beautiful.

Well done on the catch, they are a pest in NZ, although like Pam said I do believe people have them as pets. The spring flowers are beautiful as is the camellia.
