A bit of this and a bit of that

I have a love of all birds, and the owls are no exception. I just had to make this owl when I saw the pattern in a magazine.

These are a couple of my azaleas that were out in bloom this year. They make a pretty display every year.

This pink fuscia is also a favourite of mine. So petite and still adding colour to the garden.

This close up photo is part of a planting our local council did. The polyanthus make a wonderful display.

A Cup Day Fete in the Dandenongs

The Melbourne Cup, a horse race is held in Melbourne, Victoria on the first Tuesday in November each year. Cup Day is a nominated public holiday in Victoria, Australia.

Every Cup Day we like to go to the Anglican Church Fete at Kalorama in the Dandenongs. There are plenty of pre- loved items to buy as well as books, plants, conserves and cakes. Devonshire Tea and the sausage sizzle are available.
The trash and treasure is very popular and a lot of wheeling and dealing is done by the prospective buyers. All in all it is a very enjoyable time spent at this fete.
