I believe gardening is a craft, do you agree? If so, then what you do in your garden counts as art and what you find must therefore be a 'Crafting Buddy' - right?
So yesterday, being a really nice and warm sunny day, was just perfect for the gardening job of power washing the paths. After all, the warmth would help to dry the water and make a rotten job into a not so rotten one.
I moved a pot with a tree fern in and in the fallen leaves behind it was this little buddy.
He was quite happy to be held and seemed to enjoy having his photo taken.
My dilemma was whether to test out the 'kiss' thery, him being quite handsome and! maybe next time.

coo COO coo

This little chap appeared from nowhere on Friday.

He seems well enough and certainly wasn't bothered when 'peg'leg' picked him up and put him on a branch high in our spruce tree. His parents have been calling to him constantly since then, trying to encourage him to fly - which he must have done at some point to get this far because he certainly hasn't got a nest in our trees.

He is still there this morning and has only moved once to another branch and turned round once, despite all the gardening I did around him on Saturday. I reckon he was helping me by keeping an eye on me making sure I only pulled up weeds LOL.
Who is keeping an eye on you this week. Post on your blog then upload here for us all to see.

I've had my eye on these seeds since that lady crafter, who lives here, planted all those flowers last year. I suppose gardening is a type of craft so I guess it's ok that my photo appears on this blog.
Can you see me? Click on the photo and I will get bigger. That's me, just in front of that plant pot. You can tell it's me as I have 4 white feet and lovely long ears. I think I will make a quick dash for that bird suet cake now before I dash off. I may just see you again sometime. Bye.
