Last week there was a lot of noise outdoors :
it turned out to be
the noise of a chainsaw
(which makes me nervous most of the time)
Some man were busy on the little island
right on the other side of the water next to our garden.
I looked in terror :
Would they really ? ........ Noooo !
the gorgeous weeping willows
In a devastating trapeze act
the man were decimating the two trees
there were only two pitiful remnants instead of
two majestic trees
( "it will be for the best" the Parks Department will probably say ... yuk !)
This tiny creature gave me more fun :
Lissotriton vulgaris (a newt)
he (or she) was hiding with another sibling and mum under the geraniums
(but the picture of the three of them wasn't sharp enough)
And indoors the stitching on the sunny heart piece went on and on ...
After all the "sun rays" were there
(in rainbow colours)
the magic thread was stitched in place.
Which left me only with the invisible basting of the backside
which I did today !
"A warm heart"
will be send of to France tomorrow
to a very dear friend
