Anzac Day and Autumn

We have been having some lovely warm sunny days during this Autumn time

The leaves are beginning to show their Autumn tones

Even when the leaves have fallen on to the ground they make a lovely display.




During my walk I saw a lot of flowers

The wattle trees have started to blossom

I saw these wind flowers which always make a lovely display


and this well planted wheel barrow


as well as this banksia


and these silver birches.


These flowering bushes add a lot of colour

It is a lovely time of year.


It is  Anzac Day today, a day in which to remember the people who served and died in wars and conflicts.

Lest we forget

That's all for now,

Whirling Geese

My quilting guild runs a block of the month gift quilt program and for the month of March the block chosen was Whirling Geese.  I enjoyed making the above blocks.  It is a great way making quilts for the people who need them.

That's all for now,

Summer is nearly over

Whilst visiting Melbourne today I saw these sand sculptures in the window of a shop.  Very creative with a seaside backdrop.

The yellow grass of summer!  Summer is nearly over and it will be lovely to see some green grass in the paddocks again.  Hopefully we will get lots of lovely rain and some cooler weather.  I cannot wait for that!

That's all for now,

New Year's Day



Some of the lovely blooms I saw in a garden I recently visited


The garden arch and bridge


which led to a pond

Lovely ferns


Everything still had a use

There was always something interesting to see

and some carving done out of a tree stump





There was lots of creative efforts hung around


Even an old shoe comes in handy


and I saw this lovely car which was being used for a bridal party

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

That's all for now,
