Prickly Hedge News

19Apr2021

Hello everyone, how are you all?Β  Well, I hope.
Β 
Anyone have a lizard for a pet?Β  Something I’ve never really been into, they are way better outdoors anyway unless, of course, they’re bred for captivity and then its cruel to try to β€˜rescue’ them.Β  I long for the day when no animals are caged.
Β 
This week Ellie learns all about lizards and we find out what all the parts of the plant and called and do some craft work creating a plant.Β  But to kick off this week, we have the lovely Lana and Sayla who are showing us all how to sow our own seed, which hopefully will encourage all of us to get growing more.

So on Wednesday, Ellie learns all about lizards..Β  You can check that out on our website at https://www.pricklyhedge.com/right-sidebar/ or on our Facebook page /pricklyhedge.Β 

On Friday, we have a video all about learning the parts of the plant and doing some craft work to create them. Again, you can check that out on the website or Facebook page on Friday.

I hope you have a great week and what we send out weekly, gives you pause for thought and reflection or gets you motivated to get out ther and do something for yourself and for nature too.

If you have any pictures of things you’ve grown in your garden, or seeds that are already sprouting, let us know.Β  We’ve planted some broad beans so we’ll keep you updated on those.

Don’t forget that on our website, you’ll also find a round-up of environmental news on our How To’s page, https://www.pricklyhedge.com/right-sidebar/

ο»Ώ As ever, if you make anything, drop a picture on the Facebook page, we’d love to see them.

I hope you have a great week and until next time, stay safe, stay well and don’t forget to let us know if you make any of our craft items.

Lots of love from Yvonne, Bubble and #TEAMPricklyHedge

Hello everyone, how are you all?Β  Well, I hope.

Did you manage to get outdoors more last week?Β  I hope so,Β  if the weather was good (or bad) where you live.Β  I LOVE walking in the rain, so it never bothers me to go out in the rain, but I have to admit to liking the sun a tad more lol.

This week, we have some cute characters that I’ve never come across before in the guise of the Flowertots.Β  My kids used to watch Tiny Tots back in the 90’s.Β  Do you remember them?Β  I’m a tot and you’re a tot, Tilly, Tom & Tiny.Β  They loved it, along with Bump the Elephant.Β  Anyway, I digress.
Β 
Here’s a little vide featuring Primrose and Violet.Β  Enjoy.

Despite the lovely Spring weather, there are still a lot of animals that like to live underground.Β  Wednesday, we get to know what it’s like to live underground in a video that due out then.Β  You can check them out on our website at https://www.pricklyhedge.com/right-sidebar/ or on our Facebook page /pricklyhedge.Β 

If you loved the paper cherry blossom, then check out our video on Friday for #fridaycraftmorning where we’ve dug up 23 more ideas to make paper flowers.Β  I feel inspired.

It really does feel good to be getting out and about more in the fresh air, and I may even be able to get a walk in the park scheduled with my eldest son, it would be nice to see him for a little longer than 15 minutes on the doorstep.Β  Can’t wait to give him a hug, like the rest of the population.

Hello everyone, how are you all?Β  Well, I hope.

Did you have a good Easter holiday/break?Β  I LOVE Easter, it’s my favourite time, I think I like it more than Christmas.Β  But then I love the Spring and this week we’re all about swallows and cherry blossom, as well as 39 brilliant hacks to help with your recycling quest.Β  You can see that video below

A lovely animated story about swallow’s migrating will be out on Wednesday this week and you can check them out on our website at https://www.pricklyhedge.com/right-sidebar/ or on our Facebook page /pricklyhedge.Β 

On Friday, we have a gorgeous craft item for #fridaycraftmorning to make some beautiful paper cherry blossom.Β  This might be one for the mum’s and dad’s too.Β  Isn’t cherry blossom just the prettiest sight after a long hard Winter?Β  I know that when it appears in our street, Spring is definitely on its way.

Again, you can check that out on the website or Facebook page on Friday. As it’s April, we want to start pushing the Spring theme a bit more, so I hope you’re feeling a little lighter and more rejuvenated.Β  World-wide things seem to be improving a little, let’s hope that we can get back to some kind of normality by the Summertime, in the meantime, we can get outdoors and enjoy the freedom that fresh air affords us, so let’s all do that if we can.

Don’t forget that on our website, you’ll also find a round-up of environmental news on our How To’s page, https://www.pricklyhedge.com/right-sidebar/
