    Is This Clover?

    I’m not sure what clover looks like but I found this in the garden. Is that it? And how long do you leave your piggies outside for? I left them out an hour last time.

    Outside Time

    Beans decided that outside time is time for a stealth mission! The fluffy jumper is the best food you can find but it's impossible to chew! How about leggings? Nope. Let's try the jumper again... Toast just watching Beans's failing mission :luv: Beans and Toast cwtching up to me as I type :)
