A small Finish.


 This little felt bird is a copy of a robin my friend Helen made before Christmas.
 I tried to use greens to make a New Zealand Bellbird..

 I sewed in 2 real feathers under the wings. ( they originally came off the peacock at the orchard  - I kept a whole lot )

 the green is iridescent.


 The Billington plums are now ready and there is a plentiful crop. They are red fleshed and tasty.

 A close up of a beautiful gerbra.


 We all went to the jetty with the nets to  scoop out mangrove seeds and throw them up on the grass to get mowed up. We don't want our estuary to disappear and fill in with mangroves. Both grandsons enthusiastically helping R.

Your bird is beautiful. Great garden produce and a good idea to keep the mangroves away.

What a sweet little bird. The feathers are the perfect finishing touch. It looks like the boys all had a good time.
