I had the terrible dilemma this morning of which fence to post. I took so many and varied while we were away that I have a great collection for quite a few weeks. It's now a terrible obsession, everywhere I go I look for fences that have...........something! But which one to put up.........
I loved this one. the flowering gum on the nature strip sets it off beautifully.
And this bunch of flowers.............agapantha(weed), bit of snap dragon, bit of flowering gum, bit of freesia and there was something else but I can't see it to remember, was sold to me. We had driven past this group of children more than once, they had set out a huge table full of flower bunches like this one.
Every time someone drove past they would scream out, "please, please, buy some flowers".
When I went back to take my photo of this fence they came running shouting please please please..........well what does one do when children are practically begging you to buy them??? Buy them of course. $3!!!! sheesh........good little entrepreneurs coming up I think.
Yesterday I took a drive down to the Peninsular to spend the day with my SIL Willy and niece Bec (she has 4 littlies 7yo down to 8 months........Thanks Jarrod for doing "daddy" all by yourself for the WHOLE day) .
Willy's other daughter Mandy is expecting her first baby in the next week or two and they wanted to make her a quilt. Not being into patchwork (yet) they called on Aunty Mo's (me) help. So while cutting, pinning,
pressing and lots of chatting
we came up with this little number........
Added a couple of borders and ta daa!
we have an I Spy quilt for he baby.
While we were putting together a quilt, my BIL Alan was working on the grandies cubby house,
his head came off second best on no less than 4 separate occasions (he kept forgetting the doorway is child height!) Sorry I forgot to take a photo of the cubby, but it is really impressive.
Till next time, have a fabulous rest of the weekend
We came across this little fellow early one morning. It's a little marsupial of some sort, quite cute.
While we were away the Flowering Gums (Eucalyptus ficifolia) were ablaze. Here's a close up of the flowers.
Apparently (according to a local lady) this tree has been vandalised so many times that it's growth was stunted, its about 3 meters tall, but the flowers are just amazing. These trees can grow up to 10meters(30feet) tall. This year they're just gorgeous.
Just a little bit of History
Playing in the sand,........the boys aren't too big to build Sand Castles.
