School's out for Summer!

Today I got back from the field trip and it was the last day of term. No more school until September 1st, with the exception of going in for results days in August. Unfortunately, it rained constantly for the first two days of the trip. There was a let up in the rain yesterday when the Sun came out for a bit but the rain returned this morning. Despite this I think everyone had a good time and more importantly learned something about ecology.

Here is a picture of where we stayed, on a sunny day!


What with a two hour coach journey to the centre, all the rain, and not being actively involved in the delivery of the sessions, the centre staff do that. I was able to do a fair bit of sewing. As the trip was an ecology one I took Forest Tree from the Mill Hill Festival of Trees series.


I did make a small start on the next ornament bu t not enough to show. This weekend it's back to Wales. Let's hope the weather improves!

Love the tree especially the rabbits. We have had a lot of rain here in Shropshire as well. The gardens did need it though. It is just a pity it cannot rain only at night!

Lovely design I really must get myself sorted out and buy these. Glad you had a good field trip despite the weather.

We've developed 'webbed feet' up here in the North West of UK.
