Recycling

Paper making is on the agenda this week at school, so Pete and I had a practice to see how to do it.

It was lots of fun - one of my students brought in this contraption she had bought at Aldi, and it worked a treat.
Of course we had a go at adding some flowers!

It was a lot of fun - I wonder if it will be as much fun with 22 all wanting a turn!!
Poppy time here again at Flowergarden
. . . a lovely dark clematis
. . . and this is my first Japanese water iris - I love it.

Oooh paper making -- I love the addition of the flowers. And it's so fun to see your part of the world waking up with all the pretty posies, while ours is going to sleep!

I've never seen a Japanese water lily before. It is very pretty, as are all your other flowers.

Must be the season for it.... I've been thinking of finding my deckle and mould and teaching the wee girl a new and very messy (when you're nearly 4) "cwaft activity".
Loving your flowers - as always!

Paper making is so much fun-I always get a parent volunteer to help as the childrn certainly get excited. I haven't seen a contraption like the one your student brought-looks pretty nifty.
Love those Japanese lillies-I have never seen any before and I have alwas wanted a clematis but we are too hot for them where we live.

I love making paper, you have reminded me I haven't done any for a long time! We had some poppies too this week, the last ones before winter sets in, we picked them from the allotment and brought them home to enjoy. That water iris is beautiful
