The nursery at George Carey Primary school have had ten eggs in an incubator - this project has given the children the opportunity to watch chicks being born from their eggs - so I started my morning 'chick gazing' - these delightful chicks were born yesterday and are currently housed in the nursery :)) Oh the little ones (and us bigger ones) all stood around cooing and aaaahhhhing.
Next I was presented these miniature roses from one on the little girls from reception class.. so I proudly wore it as a buttonhole decoration :)) not too sure whose garden they came from!! I know it certainly wasn't hers :) I smiled inwardly to myself as I remembered yesterday's blog post 'Rose'.
A slightly older chick and her roses :)) Elsie is dear, wonderful lady who I enjoy having a cuppa and chat with and, today, was no exception; however, the first procedure is to clear the armchair of monkey nuts, bird seed and fat balls as she loves to feed the birds in her garden. In fact Elsie's garden is the only garden in Barking where I have watched Jays land and feed from the bird table.
As the sun was shining I took the opportunity to take her photo in her cherished garden next to one of her climbing roses.
I love this meerkat bird table in Elsie's garden
