This is where I have been spending most of my time this week.
My little Pete has done a MAGNIFICENT job of the vegi patch. We moved the chooks to the other side and cleaned up, and he has done LOTS of planting planting planting. I love spending time with him in the garden.
My BIG TALL boy, asked me if I was a "dreamer or a do'er". He said to me that if I wanted a bird avairy in the back yard, I needed to begin to make a space in the garden and make it happen. With his help and encouragement, we began . . .
With a few garden extensions and a little path, we moved, we dug and we dreamed and we DID!
. . . and can you believe it, we happened upon this old "cocky cage" that needs just a little bit of loving, but we think it's great. My budgies are going to be SOOOOooooo happy in my garden. It has moved to "the factory" temporarily to have some maintenance, and will return to the designated spot. I will keep you posted on this one.

Out in the front garden, I stumbled upon this beautiful poppy - wow! The buds are still coming.

These are the tulips at my front door, and all who come to visit, I say, "did you see my beautiful tulips?" I thought I'd share them with the world.

Spring is here!

Back Pack Success

I'd never made a back pack before, so when the challenge was set, I did the usual google search for tutorials.
With a combination of previous bag making skills, and some old handles on a back pack in the garage . . .
I was very happy with the result.

No Rain Today . . .

Unbelievably there was no rain today - perfect weather for the Bunninyong Makers Market - I was very excited to have my very own stall, and couldn't believe how many people came through.
When I got home, it was still NOT raining, so I was able to spend at least an hour out in my garden doing some weeding and maintenace from the soggy rain. Some of my plants needed staking and one special plant looks in quite a lot of pain, maybe drowning from all the water.
Hopefully some more rain free days to come to give the poor garden some respite.
Oh what a lovely Spring we are going to have.

A great week of art at school - yes, ART all week! It was FABULOUS!

Today we did dance workshops, and 500+ kids all did a dance routine together. It was amazing to observe. We are lucky to have such talented staff at our school.
