The Butterfly Buddies have begun to build a bench to use in the garden. First, they sawed and sanded 2 x 4s (which, it turns out, are never exactly 2″ x 4″ — who knew?!) These were then painted white, holes were drilled in them (too small, it turned out, so they’ll have to be re-drilled) and a park bench, made from a cast recycled plastic frame and 2 x 4s. Meanwhile, the wildflowers are prospering, the new nonfruiting mulberry tree is happy. One day it will provide great shade!
