I'm going to try and get little one involved in this. I've been in the garden today doing some cutting back and reckon I've saved enough bits. Also made a wire ring as a frame today. Now time to get some dry weather and convince 3yo that it's a good idea to make one.

 Is little one a boy or a girl?? I tried for 15 years to get my boys interested. The only time they dug the veg plot was at Easter when the bunny planted a tin of roses somewhere Big Grin

Little girl. She's quite good as enjoys helping (not always that helpful). I like the digging the plot idea, I may nick it in a few years. At the moment the trick is trying to stop her digging the patch.

Mine had tractors and trucks, loved moving rubbish about and then they got to about 10 and were only interested in fires!! Burnt lots of areas with a magnifying glass Big Grin made BBQs and then stole all my chickens cider vinegar to make rockets.
Then out of be the blue - from Uni last year my son sent me this -
   

He started growing Chilli plants!! All that training gets through eventually!

Well it has begun. We (me doing the grunt work, wiring in etc and 3yo being artistic director) have started a decoration. How it's going I'm not sure its "Christmas" but we'll see.

That’s looking fantastic jimny & artistic director. I think it’s looking Christmassy.

Also think I need to change my earlier statement to...... I don’t even have the artistic ability of a 3 year old  Big Grin .

On seeing Sc,s first comment I thought, setting too high a standerd , so won't be doing that, but with the second that brings it into a more achievable goal, but on reflection still too high, so won't be trying it

V, it's not so much the peg, paperclips or even possible  mitre joints,  it's the artistic bit, there is nothing about me that's artistic.  Anyhoo how permanent does this decoration need to be?  Whatever I attempt won't survive beyond a few days I fear. 
You devil, you've even got me considering it!  Get thee behind me!

I too tried to get the lad interested in the garden, failed miserably.   He's still not keen although can dig if pressured.
