Decided today that it was time the mason bees went outside. I like them to go out around mid March but the weather then was bitterly cold, so it was not a good idea. The weather is still unsettled so I ask Mr. Practical if he could make a temporary shelter for them, and it would stop me worrying about them. Now he is not the sort of man that you could chat to about the meaning of life or the nesting of blue tits, he would listen and smile in the right places, but there are more important things on his agenda. Now having said that, when I asked for the shelter, within a couple of hours it was made. It even has mini legs to stop water accumulating underneath and roofing felt on the top to keep the rain out. Now other girls might like chocolates and flowers, but hey me give me Mr Practical everytime!
