First, I am sorry for not putting in enough time for this blog. What kept me busy was the changing season – the greens spreading from across the valley to the meadows filling up the ravines, the nooks and corners and the banks of the rivers. the peeping out of small red, yellow, violet flowers the chirping of the finch, wagtails and the bulbuls. In our resort we all engaged in making flower beds, small patches of vegetables and a bird corner. The bird corner has been the master project with a bird bathing pool, a bird house and lots of bushes and tree trunks to help them build nests.
Every morning we watched the birds. While some devoured the dead butterflies and insects others looked for seeds in the nearby buckwheat fileds. The pool is now ready with natural rocks adorning it and so also the birdhouse protected by branches and twigs. The path to the local school is just behind the bird corner and so maybe we need to improve the fencing a bit more. The kids are too curious and spend a lot of time around the corner.
Meanwhile we have alos added a wind chime and a swing for kids. Anita my friends wife has promised to bring in loads of bamboo chimes which we plan to hang all around the resort as an alternate to the irritating CD music. Apples, apricots, flowers are in full bloom now and the valley looks awesome with pink, green, yellow, rust all over.
We also have another project. We plan to give face to rocks ! Selected rocks from the Baspa river valley will be used as a mould to make paper mache masks which will then be hung around the resort. Will update you all once done.
