i know it's been a while...i apologise.
things have been pretty stressful around here
when i'm in turmoil
my creative energy leaves me completely.
there were a few years
when i didn't get 'round to anything creative at all...
probably serving out the dinner attractively
or brushing my daughters hair into a ponytail smoothly
were the artiest things i did at that time.
those days have passed
i have only needed a few weeks so far...hehe!
i thought i'd take you on a little tour
of the happenings in our backyard today...just for fun.
i haven't seen this variety of pansy before...
we found a metal toolbox to plant them into...
much cheaper than a ceramic or plastic pot.
we couldn't resist buying this stunning hibiscus either.
we have had many days recently
cleaning walls and furnishings
and rearranging the furniture
to fit an extra body in the house.
we thought a pot of lavender
at the front steps
would be just the thing to survive
the intense afternoon heat
of queensland's summer sun.
i haven't bought seedlings for ages
it was a lot of fun shopping for them
with my newly arrived home daughter!
are you thinking of spring yet?...
just a few weeks away now
down here in australia!
