It's probably easier if I come to you then - I have a car all the time... I'm on shift at the moment but I'm off Mon, Tues and Weds - Tues and Weds look good to me if it's not too short notice for you? You'll have to send me your postcode and house number by PM and I'll get some directions done :cruisin

I wanna see pictures of these creations.

And yes you can use loofah's and grow them in your garden.
I want a plant too but I can buy them here for a buck at the dollar store so I'm thinking easier and probably cheaper full_of_it

I haven't seen a bird yet that doesn't LOVE the loofahs.
I attended a workshop last weekend and I was handing them out for everyone to try.
They only back away for about a second and then slowly moved towards it. After just a few minutes it was everyone favorite foot toy.
