Digging goo with a lot of effort
another getting goo shot
gathering hay for the bricks
filling up the ice cube trays to make bricks
our curing method
(we let the mud dry in the trays for a bit before
placing them on greenhouse flats to dry completely)
putting straps on the roof (not sure where he got this idea but it made sense)
the little hut for our special raspberry fairy
Just so you know a few raspberries were consumed to celebrate the completion of the project;) And now we have another reason to "check" for ripe raspberries.
There must be fairy dust in the air or something because Gardenmama posted an amazing description of her son's celebration of the tooth fairy today. And let me just say right away, her and her son's fairy houses are absolutely beautiful, and I hope that our raspberry fairy doesn't feel slighted. Even though I'm sure she doesn't have an Internet connection, fairies know these things.
What a wonderful project! It turned out so well and what a little innovator you have. I'll remember this for when Felix is a bit older.ReplyDelete
I love love the process behind making your fairy house and for a raspberry fairy? Well that is no ordinary fairy so your house is very fitting! And just look at that hair! So beautiful : ) Thanks for the link, you made me smile with the fairy internet connection... I don't know I hope our resident fairy does not catch wind of what is going on at *your* house ; )ReplyDelete

You're little boy beautiful, precious, adorable beyond words!!!!
I just stumbled upon your blog while searching for raspberry information (I'm working with raspberry in my colour therapy course)and fell completely in love!
I am so enchanted and inspired by your little boy!
Blessings to you & much happiness to you both!
