February End

 The end of the second month 2017 already - Still warm here in Ballarat, and thankful for my airconditioner. Also thankful for only working 3 days a week this year.  I am loving it already.  3 days on then 4 days off - I actually get to breathe and am enjoying the quiet times.  I find that I don't put on radio or TV, just enjoy the peace.
 My Gladioli's are all coming out into brilliant bright flowers right outside my back door.  This photo doesn't tell the full story as they are quite magnificent.
 I am quitetly preparing for The Begonia Quilters Exhibition which will be on the long weekend in March.  I am putting sleeves on the back of quilts for hanging and going through my stash getting ready for the Recycle Your Stash stall.  I am hoping to get rid of a lot of my excess stuff.
In between loving my garden of course.  I have some more dahlia's coming out which I'm looking forward to.  I will definitely be planting more of those next year.
Abraham Darby is one of my favourite roses.  2 at my front door.
Goodbye Feb.

Goodbye Feb - and hello Annie! Enjoy your days off - hope we can catch up for a coffee soon. I'm sorry to be missing the quilt show; we're going to Port Fairy Folk Festival with friends. Let me know if you need some fabric donations for the show - I'm sure I can find something!


Preciosas flores, pronto llega la primavera!! besos

Hello Annie, delightful flowers - yes, I understand when you want to show the full context of a beautiful display, but your photos certainly tell the story!
Enjoy your quiet times ... definitely a lovely idea working less hours, especially so if you're not missing it ;D)
Have a great show and enjoy yourself. Cheers for now xx

Hello dearest Annie, Thank you so much for your visit and your sweet comment. I have just been reading my way through all the posts I have missed on your blog in my absence. Life has dealt you your own challenges too, and so I offer back to you warm hugs from afar.
P.S. I love the Abraham Darby rose too!
