Moon Shadow

The lovely Annabel at Earthgirl Fabrics helped me create these lovely key fobs.
At some stage last week, the moon was evidently the closest it's been to earth in a very long time. Don't ask me how long, as my brain doesn't function with numbers too well.
But my largest son, said to me one night "mum, come and look at the moon"
I was thrilled that he had noticed, so we went outside and took some photos
I was surprised that my little camera captured the beauty of these magnificent Moon Shadows.

Hey Ginger!

I am enraptured with my Ginger Lillies this year.
Have a look at how many blooms are coming.
As well as being beautiful, they smell divine.
I brought a plant with me that I have been moving from 3 gardens ago.
I'd say it's happy here . . .
. . . and so am I each time I see it.

Long Weekend

My Mum's garden!

This is a pincushion I made for my sister. I got the pattern and the supplies when I was in Tasmania at The Quilted Crow. I loved that shop. I'm going to have to cut out another one and get working on it for moi, as I just hated parting with it. I told my sister it was a Rolls Royce pincushion -

They're in . . .

A beautiful sunny day here in Ballarat, and we were out in the back yard doing the last finishing touches to the new Bird Palace. Yesterday we went stick searching in the back blocks and found some suitable branches.
It was VERY heavy.
Mr Flowergarden and I moved it with ropes and guidance. No casualties in the garden as the space was all ready and waiting.
It fitted like a glove and we put the bird cage inside to let the birds find their own way. I just went out to check on them, and 2 have found their way into their new home, one to go.
AND . . . I can see them from my kitchen through the new glass door!

Lucky Budgies

I've cleared this space in the garden and made a little sawdust path. This weekend we are going to install the long awaited Bird Aviary. Our budgies are moving into a Palace.
The chooks will be getting next door neighbours!
I've planted a Red Pierre de Ronsard, and it's beautiful
. . . and I was amazed at the beauty of the humble tomato flower.
