Bug Houses

Easter holidays – one afternoon we gathered ourselves at Miche's plot as variously sized and aged mums and kids from 4 families to have a go at making bug houses. Having made and bought various types of bug houses myself I wanted to make it as open ended and non-prescriptive as possible. We brought containers, sticks, string, dried seed heads, bamboo cane, bark pieces. Then there was a fair bit of chopping, bundling, tyeing and chasing about.  The results were fabulous. There was also a heard of ladybirds to be found in a patch to inspire the proceedings....  Well done bug house makers and bug hunters!
