As promised, I have some photos to share of us building the veg boxes for our community park.

Here we have Callum sawing the legs for our box and I am...mmmm........smiling for the camera!

And here we have 'Charlie's Angels'  minus one, playing with a few tools that probably should be no where near us! This is Claire my friend and neighbour who has worked hard this last year helping to get this project off the ground. We are so pleased to be finally in the park building the allotment rather than sat in Council offices in yet another we get to play!

As I sit here typing this I can still here the drills going as some of the neighbours are finishing their boxes. This noise is balanced with the cheerful sounds of the local kids playing together in the park-a real joy to listen to.

This project has been a great way for our community to get to know each other and develop a real sense of community that didn't exist before. I do have a sneaky feeling that quite a bit of gossipping and tea drinking will take place alongside our veg growing!!

I did manage to get a quick bit of crafting done this weekend and have my last Easter card to share with you. So far I have made cards with Easter eggs and crosses so today we have Easter chicks.

I will be entering this into the following 'Easter' challenges:
