My Father was celebrating 40 years of being a "Man of the Cloth" on Monday. I thought it would be nice to make a card for him. A grand idea came to me. I then spent a great deal of time cutting up 2cm bits of 'cloth' and stuck each one onto black card. It reminds me of a mini quilt, so colourful and cheerful.
Look at what I picked up at the Op Shop this weekend!! Just a bit of loose change scored this darling sandwich/cake tray. I am enjoying finding silver treasures to add to my growing collection. Christmas will be shiny this year!
Now come and take a walk with me around the garden. I just picked these Freesias for you to take with you when you leave. They are growing like weeds, makes a nice change!
The girls are growing Giant Russian Sunflowers. Some have grown, but it's not looking like many are going to take part this year. They were a new packet of seeds too. Jolly disappointing isn't it? Only five out of a possible 15 have sprouted.
Anyway, come outside. Oh goodness, the Clivias are really doing themselves proud this year. So bright and orangy. Lovely to look at through the lounge windows. It's lucky I like orange or it might be a bit much, they are everywhere.
I do have some plans to buy a couple of fruit bushes for around the side. Maybe berries of some sort?
Ah and a little bit of New Zealand for you. The Punga's are reaching for the sun, as we are now. It keeps popping in and out of the clouds.
And Spring is not Spring with out Spring Cleaning is it? Well I've done a bit, but clearly not enough. Plenty of time I say. It's here for three months after all. What's the hurry? I'm not a cleaner at all. Don't get me wrong, I love a clean house, I just don't like cleaning it. Lets just say when I do clean, it really get noticed!
Now I am getting on with my little giveaway. I have bought a couple of surprises so far. All will be revealed on Friday, I hope! Until then have a good day and thank you all so much for all your lovely messages. They are so lovely to receive.
For those of you who don't have an account to be able to place messages, don't be frightened off by the word 'account', you don't have to pay for anything. I've not spent a cent yet and I have a blog. Isn't it great? And they say nothing is free!!
