Willow hurdling in Barry

Willow panels

I must admit we were slightly dreading the thought of weaving willow hurdles with children on a bitterly cold day in early February so we put it off till the next day which thankfully turned out relatively sunny and springlike.

Luckily we had a nice stock of golden willow so we were able to add some colour to these panels which are going to used as screening in a nursery.

The children quickly got into the swing of things as they wove the willow in and out of the uprights to the chant of ‘to me, to you’.

Day three – on a roll

Sun still shining, loads more weaving, can’t stop the birds from singing, anyone know how to shut up a cockerel?

Willow village coming on splendidly, had first group of children play in it which was wonderful to see. We now have a fishmongers, a doctor, a church, the White House, a baker, just to name a few of the new residences of the willow village.

Started the woven fence at the back of the extra large dome, really exciting, uprights in for the wood stores so well on track.

Italian restaurant tonight as a treat, what with Dave’s breakfasts, waitrose picnics and cafe cakes going to have to do Rosemary Connelly extreme dieting for a month!
