A blaze of sunshine
A little colour for your eyes
Am working on various mini problems at the moment but the garden calls.
Hibernating animals, now emerging, are in trouble having used up body reserves with the extended end to winter conditions. We’ve got a somewhat depleted bat, in a box on our doorstep, right now waiting for the local bat rescue and I’m not sure that are garden hedgehog has managed too well either.
Things to do …
Round the other side
Not really touched this side much other than to strew some branches hither and thither creating damage on the roof and perch a worker up there.
Built a pile of wood and tile debris on card base including broken ‘sweepings’ from the bottom of the sea-foam box
and glu-spot fixed it in place on the flat roof. It seems this guy is satisfied with his work and is now taking a break out of sight of the boss
Bread, cheese and a leather flask of something interesting
It’s hard to get a shot against the light and of more than three figures up there at a time. Here we have sandwich man, heave-ho man and ridge sitting man
Bulking up a little
Trees and things
Until now there’s been twigs of various sizes strewn across the back and side roof of the main block. They were balancing there giving a general look.
The time has come for a little more detailing and some fixing I think.
Sea foam, twigs and a bradawl
Not looking for green leaves
but would like branch bits
wrapping around roof boy
and along the ridges
leading to debris in the valleys
and joining front to back
Whilst at the back the tarpaulin hogs the view
The modellers sea foam is very brittle and I believe is usually used with leafage added.
Back up the ladder to find all the bits not yet touched up.
Hanging on looking decrepit cantilevered forward to find the missed bits – well at least some of them. Anything I still miss stays that way 😉
