…and a few others who helped making some letters for the banner ‘Open to All’ will feature at the bottom of the banner.

Little Bee's and other letters

A lovely lady gave the group several pieces of fabric that has lines of Roses printed in rows and I think that will look great along the sides or all over 😉

She also made some shower caps and clown hats for mice… ok, not really, she made lots of fabric Yo Yo’s (Suffolk Puffs?) but I think they look like very cool accessories for mice!

Here’s some Bee’s on a Ceanothus Flower – it’s part of the family: Rhamnaceae. Also known as the California Lilac, Wild Lilac, and Soap Bush and is from the Greek word meaning “spiny plant”.

We are learning a lot about Bees and plants – I didn’t realise Bees had different coloured bottoms!
