I really enjoy researching our family trees, (when the internet connection allows!) and this weekend found someone that was researching similar names. I emailed them and found out she is a direct cousin as we share the same 2nd gt grandfather. My gt grandmother being her gt Aunt. We have corresponded a couple of times but she is off on holiday to the US visiting her daughter, so I shall have to sit on my hands till the end of the month before we can swap stories. I know very little of that side of the family, apart from some hand me down tales which may or may not be true. Exciting though.
Talking of trees, we went to Miniature Club yesterday, this is held in the Casa de Cultura in Pedreguar, a multi roomed public meeting place where groups can meet with no charge.
This month Chris made up kits and plans for a bird table
There were only 5 of us this time, but here is what we created, just need some tiny birds
In the courtyard someone was exhibiting their collection of bonsai trees which were just perfect as a back drop.
Off to do some outside painting.........
