Bee happy

Today was the final day of the bee project that started a few weeks ago. The idea was to make pots to grow plants that will attract bees as part of CHO’s Year of the Bee activities.  It was great fun and we all enjoyed ourselves a lot. I was amazed at how relaxing it all was, and was reminded of how much I used to love doing crafty things when I was young – I don’t get to it nearly as much as I would like to these days. I forgot to take pics the first week, but have done so since, so you will get an idea of the different people and their pots. One of the other very interesting things about the sessions was that we started up with the same lumps of unformed clay to start with, and all of our pots turned out so differently. A classic example emerging in front of our eyes of our own unique styles. All beautiful of course. Many thanks to Connie for leading the way with her great skills, and to all who came along and made it such a happy experience.

    The pots speak volumes’ (about diversity); and the pictures convey classic conviviality… and no doubt quite a few ‘stories’ were exchanged.

    • Hi Ian,
      Thanks for the comment – I take it you came to the post via Peter, the prince of conviviality! It was a lovely few weeks that is for sure…
      Cheers to you (in wintry Canada??)

        Aye! Peter the Prince was the culprit! This actually comes from Edinburgh Scotland, where my wife and I have moved for a few years – we are loving it – but we still have a soft spot for Adelaide, and his Hoot of a Highness… Cheerrrrrs! Ian W

      • Ah! Wintry and wonderful Edinburgh. Excellent… Prince Peter is a marvel and the ACCBC (and all he touches it seems) is a treat. Glad you enjoyed Adelaide, whenever you were here.
        Cheers and greetings again
        Elizabeth
