I’m not a lover of the winter, infact the idea of hibernating from November through to March is entirely acceptable in my book. Having said that ironically I’m outdoors most days and that means I feel the seasons more accutely than most and I certainly feel the cold!…… Continue reading
The Tiny Trowelers became Kings and Queens of the garden this week. We created fabulous crowns decorated with petals & leaves from around the garden. They looked great!

A great week in the Tiny Trowels garden! The Tiny Trowelers have been busy putting the finishing coat of paint on their colourful pots. We have also been brewing up some special potions to help our plants grow big and strong (no newt or frog were harmed during potion making!). The sunflowers are growing nicely, competition is not yet fierce. That said there was a lot of watering going on by some! Once the potions are ready we may have some world record breakers!!
It’s half term next week so I will see you all the following week. Have a lovely break!
Great sessions this week with the Tiny Trowelers….. what’s not to love about mud painting! Take a good dollop of mud, add water till you have the perfect brown paint and then, go crazy. We had mud monsters coming out of mud caves, mud handprints, mud paint flicking, there was even a mud me painted on the tree (thank you Darcie, I love my big smiley face)!
We also planted up some grass egg heads that the Tiny Trowelers will grow on at home and eventually they will need a haircut! I may give mine a mohican, watch this space and feel free to share your pictures!
