The red currant thief.


When I go up the garden these days the blackbirds and sparrows and all their no-good pals fly guiltily up out of the fruit bushes with embarrassed squawks. Caught out again - red-beaked. Strawberry, redcurrant, blackcurrant and raspberry - I think of it as my equivalent to a net of peanuts. And sometimes they leave a few berries for me.

    I know that feeling!

    We also currently have magpies eating fish food out of the pond...

    Hi, I just found your blog via a post you made in 2006 when I was searching for "colour and weave sampler", this is something I'm researching as I'd like to weave one but haven't found out much about what one is!

    I'll be back as I love to read the blogs of other weavers and am also a keen gardener.

    I have a blog that you can find with a google search for "Dot's fibre to fabric". Bye for now.

    blue witch - at least the fish food may distract the magpies from upsetting the other birds in your garden.

    dorothy - thank you, I do visit your blog every now and then to see how your weaving odyssey develops.
