A trip to Lambley with mum

Lots and lots of exciting things happening in my Spring Garden at the moment.
However, combine that with a week long visit from my beautiful mum, and the fact that I have just changed over computers at school - I am having trouble working out how to blog. It's all different from before with different buttons, different commands, and I'm having to call in lots of tech support for "Master 16 Flowergarden" who is an IT Wiz Kid thank goodness!
I'm certainly not.
The top 2 are from my garden, a lovely frilly Poppy, and a beautiful Geum (not sure that is how you spell it), but just simple and beautiful - I love it.
Then I have tried to be a bit clever with a video. Mum and I went out to our favourite Nursery on Wednesday, and there were SO many beautiful pictures that I thought this would be a good way to share them. I hope it works.

Don't think it worked - will keep trying

Sister love


Go and see what my clever sister is up to - leave her a comment - she'd be ever so pleased. I think she is wonderful the way she creates things.

Amidst my holidays, I've been beavering away on a bit of Patchandi Scraptacular
Last night around midnight, I pieced the top together and pinned it to the curtains
My eldest Flower Garden Child was not too sure about the patterns he could see, but once it was finished, he got the idea, even though he wasn't 100% happy with the concept.
A random edge with the left overs and it's time to go back to school tomorrow
I had a lovely day today, visiting 2 gardens, belonging to friends, and going to a design market.
This Boronia was spectacular, and I am very tempted to try growing some in my garden.
I did love this touch in the garden
. . . and as for this garden, they described it as their "Tulip Festival Garden", and they weren't too far wrong there. It was SPECIAL

I just drank in the beauty and colour
and it was a lovely finish to my holidays.
