Mars 18 2018: Visite atelier/jardin du club AMICALE CREUSOISE DE VEHICULES D'EPOQUE

Un bon échange ce week-end,
 Adam démontre ses compétences
 lorsque le club automobile ajoute un peu de
 couleur au jardin.



Premier sorti des nouveau mangeoires fait 
a partir d'anciens vaisselles.











PicaPica Garden installation, home, France.

When we have time, we create sculptures and
 installations for our garden here in Creuse, France.






This is Tracey's 'Plastic Garden City' made from discarded plastic.





The installation was evolving slowly but once the bottle tree arrived,
 the  future city theme emerged and progress speeded up.

Projet Epouvantail/ Attirant....(Scarecrow/ Insect hotel project) Lavaveix Les Mines ecole maternelle, Summer term 2017.

Tracey was asked to create a scarecrow with the nursery class...


Adam helped with the frame...
the youngsters helped with the rest...


...but she persuaded them they also needed an insect hotel...





...the kids learned the difference between beasts that help
 us in the garden, and those we would prefer to deter.
